Cam Newton has already broken school records for rushing yards and passing TDs this season.

Auburn, AL (AP) - Auburn officials aren't talking about embattled quarterback Cam Newton status for the second-ranked Tigers' game with Georgia.

Spokesman Kirk Sampson said Friday the school had 'no comment'
when asked about Newton's status. Coach Gene Chizik had said
Wednesday the Heisman Trophy front-runner "will be playing
Saturday." Chizik hasn't spoken publicly on the issue since.

Newton and his father, Cecil, have both insisted they did
nothing wrong during the player's recruitment. Two former
Mississippi State players say Cecil Newton sought money during that
school's recruitment of Newton.

NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn says the NCAA doesn't talk about "current, pending or potential investigations" when asked if the
governing body had advised Auburn of eligibility questions
involving Newton.
