Ducks Score First, Lead 3-0 In 2011 BCS Championship Game

Auburn and Oregon are beginning to settle down a bit on offense in the 2011 BCS Championship Game, with longer possessions winding down the first quarter of play. (Either that or their less-than-vaunted defenses are already winding down. Your call.)

The Tigers' third possession begins promisingly, with Darvin Adams catching a 12-yard pass from Cam Newton on second down, but a sack on Newton three plays later sends out the punt unit. On come the Ducks, and LaMichael James gets the first two carries, but it's Darron Thomas' arm that makes the first conversion, finding Lavasier Tuinei for a 19-yard gain. The first quarter closes on a 12-yard catch by D.J. Davis, but Thomas is hit in the backfield on the first play of the second quarter for a six-yard loss, and on comes the kicking unit. Rob Beard hooks a 26-yarder through the uprights, and an unthinkably scoreless first quarter is in the books. With 14:17 remaining in the second quarter, Oregon leads Auburn, 3-0.
