Game: vs. Oregon (BCS National Championship Game)
The score was tied. Auburn 19, Oregon 19. Just over two minutes left. At their own 40-yard line, Heisman winner Cam Newton took the snap for the Tigers. He gave the ball to freshman running back Mike Dyer, who was arguably one of the most underlooked players in the land. He galloped about six yards before he was brought to the ground by Oregon's defender. Only... he wasn't down. After a second and a half of confusion, Darvin Adams and the Auburn sideline yelled at Dyer to keep running, and he ran it down to the Oregon 24-yard line.
This play led to the game-winning field goal by Wes Byrum, and Auburn won its first national title since 1957, 22-19 over the Ducks.
