It’s official: The Auburn Tigers are your new BCS Champions!
The Tigers kicked a game-winning field goal in the final seconds to beat the Oregon Ducks 22-19. In a game that many expected to be a high-scoring affair, it was the defenses that really stole the show. Both offenses struggled through much of the game because of high-level play from each team’s defense. However, it was the Auburn running game that eventually wore down the Oregon defense to help cement the victory.
In particular, there was one play that put the Tigers in position to win the game. The Ducks had tied the game at 19-19 with around 2 minutes to play, but the Tigers were not ready to give up the game to overtime. On the play in question, Auburn freshman running back Michael Dyer took the ball and scooted around to the right side of the field before being brought down by an Oregon defender–or so it seemed. The whistle never blew, so Dyer got up and kept running before eventually being brought down again deep in Oregon territory. While Dyer had indeed been brought down, his knee never hit the turf; instead, he simply rolled on top of his would-be tackler before getting back up to make the championship-winning run. That run lead to the game-winning field goal.
