POSTGAME UPDATE: The play below was the highlight, but in the end the Auburn offense had plenty enough to see off LSU , 24-17. As in, had 527 total yards of offense , 25 first downs, a staggering 441 rushing yards, and a flatly unbelievable
8.5 average yards-per-carry. The big second-half blow was Onterio McCalebb 's 70-yard jaunt in the fourth quarter to give Auburn the final seven-point margin.

Nick Fairley continued to pace Auburn's defense (4 tackles-for-loss, 2.5 sacks), but the story here -- given the strength of the LSU defense -- is the rise of what is without question the SEC 's most fearsome offense ... and arguably, give or take an Oregon , the country's.


Auburn
leads LSU 17-10 in the third quarter, but even the score of this matchup of undefeated SEC heavyweights sort of pales next to a transcendent football play like this one from Cam Newton :






















If Newton wasn't already your Heisman front-runner, he is now. In fact, he's in danger of lapping the field.

Any man who can break one of Timmy Touchdown's records this quickly deserves the accolades. Bet Tebow is the first guy congratulating Cam when he receives the award. His dad, Cecil, made an excellent decision, obviously, when he helped steer his son to JC. He would be a perfect fit for the Gators current, anemic offense since Coach Addazio refuses to change the playbook from 2008. Brantley is suffering in an offense built for Tebow. Sorry, this is supposed to be about Cam. He's got my vote. Incredible, simply, incredible.

1319 passing and 1096 rushing - Robinson  and 1376 passing and 1076 rushing - Newton / May want to check your "way more passing yards" stats you have there.  True Michigan had a bye week but they have also lost 2 games straight. Auburn is undefeated and in contention for a SEC title and potentially a BCS national title shot if they can navigate the rest of the schedule.  If Michigan were undefeated, you'd be hearing Robinson getting hype like this but wins do count for this trophy.

Um, you're not counting someone by the name of Denard Robinson. Sure, Newton can put up more rushing yards, but Denard puts up nearly the same numbers for the season, but Denard has way more passing yards. The only reason that his name isn't being brought into the conversation right now is because he had a bye week this week. Next week will be interesting to see how he handles Penn State's D. If he plays... If Denard goes off big in that game, Denard may take the Heisman way from Newton.


Go Blue! Vote Denard for Heisman!

After running for 200 yards against such a great defense I think Cam made a statement to any doubters...
