Oregon TD In Last Three Minutes Ties Championship Game

It hasn't always been pretty, but the NCS Championship Game between Auburn and Oregon has been exciting.  After a Cam Newton fumble gave the Oregon offense life, the Ducks went 40 yards in 8 plays for a touchdown - capped by a 2-yard run by LaMichael James.  Oregon wasn't done.  Needing the two-point conversion to tie the game, Darron Thomas found Jeff Maehl in the end-zone, setting up a dramatic finish between two of college football unbeaten teams.

Not to be out-done, Auburn is driving right back down the field and is in position to attempt a potential game-winning field goal.
