Cam Newton and the Tigers continue to rise in the polls.

Auburn, AL (AP) - All Auburn coach Gene Chizik will say about
Cam Newton is that the star quarterback will start for the
second-ranked Tigers against Georgia on Saturday.

Chizik declined to answer questions Wednesday about an ESPN
report that Newton told a Mississippi State recruiter that his
father wanted him to go to Auburn because "the money was too
much."

Citing unidentified sources, ESPN reported late Tuesday that
Newton and his father, Cecil, each had a phone conversation with a
Mississippi State recruiter and acknowledged a pay-for-play
arrangement.

Chizik offered a passionate defense of Newton on Tuesday,
calling a report about cheating accusations when Newton was at
Florida "pure garbage."
