Auburn's Cam Newton (2) carries the ball as Oregon's Kenny Rowe (58) falls to the turf during the second half of the BCS national championship game Monday in Glendale, Ariz.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Cam Newton received medical treatment on
his back after No. 1 Auburn's 22-19 victory against No. 2 Oregon.

The Heisman Trophy winner showed up about 10 minutes late for
the postgame news conference, then left before his teammates and
coach Gene Chizik were done Monday night.

Newton says it wasn't just one hit that made his back go out. He
never missed an offensive play.

The Auburn quarterback passed for 265 yards and two touchdowns
and ran 22 times for 64 yards.

He said: "I'm OK. It was worth it."
