AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Heisman Trophy favorite Cam Newton can focus
on playing for the SEC championship instead of worrying about
pay-for-play.

The NCAA ruled Wednesday that Auburn's quarterback won't be
punished for the pay-for-play scheme concocted by his father,
Cecil.

Instead, the younger Newton will lead the second-ranked Tigers
into the Southeastern Conference championship game Saturday against
South Carolina -- with a shot at the national title on the line.

The NCAA cleared Newton to compete without conditions, saying it
was Cecil Newton and "an owner of a scouting service" -- former
Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers -- who violated amateurism
rules.
