Cameron Newton

QB Auburn, Jr.

Last Week: 13-of-21 passing for 210 yards and one INT; 28 rushes for 198 yards and four TDs in 37-34 win over Kentucky

Season: 70-of-108 passing for 1,138 yards, 12 TDs and five INTs; 104 rushes for 672 yards and nine TDs

Some call him the Denard Robinson of the South, though if last week was any indication, we may end up calling Robinson the Newton of the North before the season is up. The SEC's leader in rushing yards and total offense ran for four first-half touchdowns to help the Tigers reach 6-0 for the first time since '04. He's emerged as the conference's leading Heisman candidate and could further distance himself from Ryan Mallett in their showdown at Jordan-Hare Stadium this week.

Up Next: Saturday vs. No. 12 Arkansas
