AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn quarterback Cam Newton mostly got a
reprieve from getting hit.
Now, the eighth-ranked Tigers figure to turn him loose again as
a dual threat Saturday night at Kentucky. Newton's only credited
run in a 52-3 romp over Louisiana-Monroe was a sack.
Coach Gene Chizik emphasized after the game that Newton needs to
do what he's asked within the offense, not win games by himself.
Newton had run 25 times the previous week against South
Carolina, and at least 15 in each of the previous three games. He
has led the Tigers to their highest ranking since 2006.
Now, Auburn is set to finish October with the visit to Kentucky
and Mississippi sandwiched around games with No. 11 Arkansas and
No. 12 LSU.
