Cam Newton Investigation: Still In Line To Play Against Georgia Bulldogs

Last night, Auburn Tigers athletics director Jay Jacobs commented on QB Cam Newton, saying Auburn “looks for Cam to continue playing for us.” Newton’s recruitment to Auburn and Mississippi St. is being investigated by the NCAA, but nothing has come out that would prohibit him from playing this Saturday against the Georgia Bulldogs. Newton responded with a defense that could be used wonderfully in just about any circumstance: “When God be blessin’, the devil be messin’.”

Newton is the far-and-away Heisman Trophy favorite after leading Auburn to an undefeated SEC title run and No. 2 BCS ranking. Without him, the Tigers would likely be underdogs in two of their next three games — and their involvement in that third depends in part on beating Georgia.

Auburn must beat either Georgia or the Alabama Crimson Tide to earn a spot in the SEC Championship Game, though a loss to the unranked Dawgs would raise serious questions about whether a one-loss Auburn should be invited to the BCS title game over an undefeated TCU Horned Frogs team. In other words, they’d really like to have Cam Newton on Saturday.
