SEC Championship Game Score: Cam Newton Throws Fourth TD Pass, Auburn Up 49-14

It's now the fourth quarter and the Auburn Tigers want to melt the clock as much as they can so they can come away with their 13th win of the season and move on to the BCS Championship game on January 10. They were able add on to their big lead as Cam Newton threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Emory Blake to go up 49-14 with 11:14 left in the game.

Newton has played out of his mind so far, throwing for 333 yards and four touchdowns. He has also rushed for 74 yards and one touchdown, so Newton has accounted for all of Auburn's touchdowns and has close to 50 touchdowns for the season. To put into perspective, he has more touchdowns than 87 of the teams in the FBS. 

It has just been a tough go for South Carolina. They could not stop Newton and gave too many big plays. The game is not over, but South Carolina has already put in their backup quarterback as Connor Shaw has taken over.
