AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Cam Newton responded to allegations of
wrongdoing with another brilliant performance Saturday, passing for
two touchdowns and running for two more to lead No. 2 Auburn into
the Southeastern Conference championship game with a 49-31 victory
over Georgia.
The Tigers (11-0, 7-0 SEC) will face either Florida or South
Carolina for the conference title Dec. 4 in Atlanta, and have their
eyes on a national championship.
Newton carried 30 times for 151 yards and completed 12 of 15
passes for 148 yards. He finished off the Bulldogs in the fourth
quarter with a touchdown pass that made it 42-31, then dove over
for the final score.
Georgia (5-6, 3-5) had won four straight in the Deep South's
oldest rivalry and jumped ahead 21-7. But the Bulldogs couldn't
hold on, despite A.J. Green's nine receptions for 160 yards.
