Cam Newton Scores BCS Championship Game's First Touchdown

The second quarter of the 2011 BCS Championship Game has only been on for three minutes, and it's already more action-packed than the entire first period.

Auburn takes over at their own 18-yard line, and young Michael Dyer gets the first touch, running left for five yards. Terrell Zachery catches an eight-yard pass from Cam Newton, and Dyer converts another set of downs with a10-yard run on the third play. It's Zachery again for 13 yards on the next snap, and the Tigers are rolling. Darvin Adams and Onterio McCalebb set up Auburn's scoring position at Oregon's 35-yard line, and on second-and-10, Newton hits erstwhile quarterback Kodi Burns over the middle for a 35-yard touchdown pass. With 12:00 remaining in the second quarter, Auburn leads, 7-3.
