Auburn kicker Wes Byrum booted a 19-yard field goal with no time remaining to give Auburn a 22-19 win over the Oregon Ducks in the BCS Championship Game.It marks the Tigers’ first national championship since 1957 and the fifth title in a row by an SEC team.

Oregon rallied to tie the score with two and a half minutes remaining, but Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton led the team down the field — aided by a spectacular run by freshman running back Mike Dyer where he appeared to be tackled but did go down — to set up the game winning FG.
