National Collegiate Football Championship Game Results
To my friend Martin in St. Petersburg who picked the Ducks, I warned him that “ducks” don’t make a good symbol – duck and cover; here comes the ball – duck! He is a southerner now, and he waved off the Auburn Tigers.
I admit that I get Auburn Tigers confused with the Clemson Tigers. Tigers are everywhere. Clemson put a red paw on their helmets. Auburn University uses AU that sounds like hey you.
My Ohio State University Buckeyes sure seemed like they played better than Ducks and Tigers. What’s a buckeye? Falls from a tree. Looks like the eye of a deer.
Oh well. I watched the Monday night BCS playoff but I would have opted for watching a new Outsourced program instead.
I fell asleep on the seesaw and missed the final kick. Kicking is no way to end a game featuring Cam Newton is it?
“Auburn Wins BCS Title With Last-Second Kick

Jan. 10: Auburn's Kodi Burns (18) and teammates celebrate after beating Oregon 22-19 in the BCS National Championship game in Glendale, Ariz.
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Auburn running back Michael Dyer never heard any whistle, so he just kept running -- past the tackler who thought he had him down and deep into Oregon territory.
Dyer broke stride, then took off on a once-in-a-lifetime run in the final minutes, setting up a field goal on the last play that led No. 1 Auburn over the No. 2 Ducks 22-19 in the BCS championship game Monday night.
The freshman running back upstaged Auburn's Heisman-winning quarterback Cam Newton with a 37-yard run, in which he appeared down but wasn't -- his knee never hit the ground -- as he rolled over Oregon defender Eddie Pleasant to put the Tigers in scoring position.
Three plays later, Dyer ran 16 yards to push the ball to the 1 and set up Wes Byrum's 19-yard field goal with no time left. It was his sixth career game-winning field goal -- the one that capped off a perfect, 14-0 season, brought the title back to Auburn for the first time since 1957 and left the Southeastern Conference on top for the fifth straight year.
"Fifty-three years, baby," coach Gene Chizik said to the cheering crowd. "This is for you. War Eagle!"
