GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Auburn running back Michael Dyer turned a
short run into a 37-yard gain by spinning over the top of a
defender, setting up the winning field goal in the top-ranked
Tigers' 22-19 win over No. 2 Oregon Monday night in the BCS
championship.

After Oregon tied the score, Dyer took a run right and appeared
to be tackled by Oregon's Eddie Pleasant. Dyer's knee never hit the
ground and he held himself up with his hand, not his forearm.

Dyer hesitated for a moment, then ran 22 more yards to Oregon's
23. The play stood after a video review and, a few plays later, Wes
Byrum hit a 19-yard field goal as time expired to give Auburn its
first national championship in 54 years.
