With their 22-19 victory on Monday night, the Auburn Tigers won their first-ever BCS national championship and capped a 14-0 season full of exciting games with one more against the Oregon Ducks in Glendale, Arizona.
Cam Newton and the Tigers did just enough Monday night to squeak by the Ducks in what was supposed to be a high scoring affair, but was sloppy to start.
A few three-and-outs along with a string of turnovers on both sides had the offense-hungry fans a little impatient early, but both squads were able to muster some offense after shaking the early rust.
In the end it was Auburn running back Michael Dyer who set up Wes Byrum’s game-winning 19-yard field goal with no time left on the clock that gave the Tigers their first perfect season since 2004, where they were famously left out of the BCS title game.
This year, afforded the opportunity to play for a national title, the Tigers did not disappoint.
Your 2010-11 BCS National Champions are the Tigers of Auburn, capping yet another exciting college football season.
