Newton, No. 5 Auburn top LSU, 24-17

Associated Press - October 23, 2010 7:24 PM ET

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Cam Newton ran for 217 yards and Onterio McCalebb sprinted 70 yards for the go-ahead score with 5:05 left to lift No. 5 Auburn to a 24-17 victory over No. 6 LSU.

The host Tigers (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) moved on as the powerful league's last unbeaten team. LSU (7-1, 4-1) finally had a Les Miles gamble backfire in an adventurous season.

Newton didn't do anything to set back his Heisman Trophy candidacy against the SEC's top defense. He ran for two touchdowns and broke the league's single-season rushing mark for a quarterback of 1,006 yards by Auburn's Jimmy Sidle in 1963. He also topped Heisman winner Pat Sullivan's 40-year-old school mark of 26 TDs rushing and passing in a season.

Miles opted to go for it on fourth & 6 from LSU's 30 with 3:27 left. Jarrett Lee tried to scramble for it but was stopped well short by Neiko Thorpe.
