BCS National Championship Game: Florida Scores First, Oklahoma Storms Back

After a first quarter of the BCS National Championship Game in which the teams felt each other out and didn't do much damage, both Florida and Oklahoma have turned up the heat early in the second quarter.

Less than a minute into the first quarter, Florida took a 7-0 lead when Tim Tebow hit Louis Murphy for a 20-yard touchdown pass. Murphy reached the ball over the goal line just as he was being tackled and the ball came loose, but the ball had already crossed the goal line.

But it didn't take Oklahoma long to respond. The Sooners marched down the field 65 yards on six plays, culminating with Sam Bradford hitting Jermaine Gresham for a six-yard touchdown. It's currently 7-7 midway through the second quarter.
