Cam Newton

QB Auburn, Jr.

Last Week: 10-of-14 passing for 140 yards and one TD; 25 of 188 rushing for three TDs in 65-43 win over Arkansas

Season: 80-of-122 passing for 1,278 yards, 13 TDs and five INTs

Like Robinson, Newton has built his campaign by shouldering the offensive load, producing 63 percent of Auburn's yardage. But unlike Robinson, there's no question about whether the 6-foot-6, 240-pounder can handle the punishment. just look at his TD yards of 5, 1 and 3 yards against Arkansas. Newton, who is the first Tiger with four 170-yard rushing games in one season since 1985 Heisman winner Bo Jackson, will now face the best defense he's seen in LSU's third-ranked unit.

Up Next: Saturday vs. No. 6 LSU
