Auburn Tigers coach Gus Malzahn doesn't have enough good things to say about his quarterback Nick Marshall. In fact, he believes he should be considered for the most prestigious individual award in college football.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton now has a huge statue of himself to go along with his Heisman Trophy and AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. He also has outsized expectations for Year 2.
Cam Newton overcame legal and academic problems at Florida, arrived at Auburn with one season of starting experience at a junior college and went on to win the best-known individual honor in American sports.
Cam Newton passed for a career-best 335 yards and four touchdowns, plus ran for a couple of TDs to lead No. 2 Auburn past 18th-ranked South Carolina 56-17 for the Southeastern Conference title Saturday.
