Cam Newton

QB Auburn, Jr.

Last Week: Idle

Season: 135-of-198 passing for 2,038 yards, 21 TDs and six INTs; 206 rushes for 1,297 yards and 17 TDs; two receptions for 42 yards and one TD

The off-field drama surrounding Newton isn't going away, but this week it could pale in comparison to what happens on the field. Newton and Auburn head to Tuscaloosa for the Iron Bowl, and Alabama would like nothing better than to put a major dent in its rival's national title hopes. The game could also define Newton's Heisman candidacy. Dominate, and he may have the trophy wrapped up; struggle, and he'll give his detractors even more ammunition.

Next Up: Friday at No. 9 Alabama
