BCS Championship Game Score: 11-7, Cam Newton And LaMichael James Trade TDs

And now our BCS Championship Game shootout is underway. We’ve had three scores between the Oregon Ducks and Auburn Tigers in the first five minutes of the second quarter, including a surprise two-point conversion.

Auburn QB Cam Newton threw a 35-yard touchdown to Kodi Burns to give Auburn a brief lead, with Oregon QB Darron Thomas following shortly later with an 81-yard pass to Jeff Maehl that set up an eight-yard touchdown to LaMichael James.

But wait!

The Ducks chased their touchdown with a two-point conversion run by Rob Beard — and we’re still crunching the numbers on exactly why that happened, but it was probably for a very good cause.

Auburn has driven well past midfield already, and we are underway. Oregon has still outgained Auburn by almost 100 yards, 212 to 126, but yards aren’t going to matter for much once Auburn discovers a four-point play.
