Newton approaches TD record

Junior quarterback Cam Newton currently has 25 touchdowns on the season (12 rushing and 13 passing), one score shy of Pat Sullivan's school record for touchdowns, which he reached in 1970 after running for nine touchdowns and passing for 17.

"I'll tell you this," Sullivan said. "I'm pulling for him because he's a great player, but more important than that, he's a great person. He's representing Auburn in a first-class manner, and that's important to me."

Newton is expected to break the record in Saturday's game against LSU, the only undefeated SEC team other than Auburn.

Newton ran for 188 yards in Saturday's game against Arkansas, marking the fourth time he has rushed for more than 170 yards in a game. Newton is the first player in Auburn history to do so in three consecutive SEC games.

Newton has won SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors three times this season, in addition to other awards, including National Player of the Week and Davey O'Brien quarterback of the week.

He currently ranks second in the nation in passing efficiency (180.53) and 11th in rushing yards (122.9) and total offense (305.4).
