The second half of the 2011 BCS Championship Game has begun, and right away Auburn's out to bleed the clock. Four straight rushing passes by Cam Newton and Michael Dyer are capped with a monster, 39-yard pass by Newton to tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen on second down. The play moves the Tigers from just past midfield to just inside Oregon's red zone, and the score doesn't take long: Cam Newton throws two incomplete passes, rushes left for five yards, and the drive stalls at the Ducks' 11-yard line. Wes Byrum boots a 28-yard field goal through the uprights, and Auburn's lead extends. With 11:34 remaining in the third quarter, the Tigers lead the Ducks, 19-11. Cam Newton may be nursing some sort of upper-body injury on the sidelines; we'll keep you updated if any more news develops on that front.
