The 2011 BCS Championship Game is about to witness its longest possession -- by a vast margin -- in tonight's game. Unable to slow down Oregon's offense by any means they currently possess that don't involve Nick Fairley killing a guy (and we're not saying they've ruled that out, if we know Auburn), the Tigers mount a seven-minute, 70-yard drive ... that falls short at Oregon's 1-yard line when a Cam newton pass on 4th-and-1 falls short.
They'll still come away with points, however: LaMichael James is tackled on first down in his own endzone, and though he stretches the ball out to the line, the ruling is a safety and Oregon's lead is cut to two points. With 3:32 remaining in the second quarter, Oregon leads, 11-9.
