Ohio State on upset watch in B1G title game

The Michigan State Spartans have their gameplan working early in Indianapolis -- hold on to the ball, milk the clock, play shutdown defense and capitalize on opportunities. The Spartans lead the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes 17-10 at halftime, in a result that would certainly shake up the BCS picture were it to continue.

The game was a low-scoring one in the first quarter, with Michael Geiger's 40-yard field goal the only points in the period.

Connor Cook played a phenomenal half, and got on the board twice in the second quarter. His first touchdown toss was 72 yards to a wide-open Keith Mumphrey and less than five minutes later he found Tony Lippett for another score -- this one from 33 yards out.

Here's the Mumphrey touchdown, for your viewing pleasure.

Cook finished the half 11-of-17 for 182 yards and two scores -- more yardage than five of his regular season games.

After the second Sparty touchdown, Ohio State seemed to bring an extra level of determination to its offensive gameplan, marching down the field for a quick score. Braxton Miller found Philly Brown in the end zone for a 20-yard score, cutting the Michigan State lead to 17-7.

With less than 30 seconds to play in the half, Miller found Jeff Heuerman over the middle for a big gain, setting up Drew Basil's 28-yard field goal to bring the deficit back within a score.

Auburn leads Missouri 28-27 at halftime

The Auburn Tigers have the upper hand over the Missouri Tigers after an excellent first half in Atlanta, 28-27. The two teams have combined for nearly 700 yards of total offense, and the 55 combined points is a new first half record for the SEC Championship Game. Tre Mason has 194 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the first half alone, and Nick Marshall has a touchdown in the air and on the ground while going 5-5 passing for 98 yards, all of which went to Sammy Coates.

It felt like Auburn was on the verge of pulling away at the end of the half, but Missouri was able to flip the script when James Franklin hit Dorial Green-Beckham for his second touchdown of the half, a 55-yard catch with 18 seconds remaining before the break. Green-Beckham missed a portion of the half while getting his shoulder looked at, but he still has over 100 receiving yards. That plus two Auburn turnovers are keeping the Tigers right on pace with the other Tigers.
