Cam Newton named National Player of the Week

AUBURN – Rivals.com named Auburn junior quarterback Cameron Newton the National Player of the Week and Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on Sunday.

Newton led Auburn to a 35-27 victory over No. 12 South Carolina on
Saturday, rushing for 176 yards and three touchdowns, and throwing for
158 yards and two more scores. It marked the second time this season
that Newton has accounted for five touchdowns in a game.

Newton's rushing total eclipsed his previous high of 171 yards,
giving him the second- and third-highest single-game rushing totals by a
quarterback in Auburn history. He had a 54-yard touchdown run on
Auburn's first possession, and added scores from three and four
yards out later in the game.

With Auburn trailing 21-20 in the fourth quarter, Newton threw a 7-yard
touchdown pass to Philip Lutzenkirchen, then added a 12-yard scoring
strike to Emory Blake to cap the scoring. He is the first player in
Auburn history to throw at least two touchdown passes in each of the
first four games of a season.

Newton now leads the SEC and ranks 11th nationally in rushing,
averaging 121.3 yards per game, and also tops the conference in passing
efficiency (182.46), ranking fourth in the country. He ranks second in
the SEC and 18th nationally in total offense (292.0), seventh in the
league in all-purpose yardage (126.8) and tied for ninth in scoring
(7.5).

Newton and the No. 10 Tigers will return to action this Saturday when
Auburn hosts ULM. The game will kick off at 11 a.m. CT and be televised
by ESPNU.
