GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Wes Byrum kicked a 19-yard field goal as
time expired and No. 1 Auburn beat No. 2 Oregon 22-19 to win the
BCS national championship Monday night.

Oregon had tied it at 19 with 2:33 left when Darron Thomas
connected with Jeff Maehl on a tying 2-point conversion after
LaMichael James scored on a shovel pass.

Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and Auburn came right back with
a 73-yard drive, with freshman Michael Dyer making the key plays.
First he rolled over an Oregon tackler and, with most of the
players thinking the play was over around midfield, scooted another
30 yards to the 23.

A play later, Dyer went through the middle for 16 to the 1.

After Newton was pushed back a yard, Byrum came on with 2
seconds left to kick the winner and give Auburn its first national
championship since 1957 and the Southeastern Conference's fifth in
a row.
