In good hands with Cam

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton ranks second in the nation in “touchdown responsibility” with 21 points per game.
Newton has had a hand in 21 of the Tigers’ 28 touchdowns this season and the 21 combined rushing and passing touchdown are eighth most in a single season at Auburn.

Revenge no factor
Arkansas has beaten the Tigers each of the last two seasons, including 44-23 last season in coach Gene Chizik’s first season at Auburn.
Chizik says he never preaches the revenge angle.
“No, we don’t operate off the word ‘revenge,’” he said. “2009 is 2009 and 2010 is a different year. This is a very important game to us, obviously. Any one of our players would tell you that. It is as important as last week’s conference game and two weeks ago our conference game. They’re all extremely important and it’s another Tuesday. We have to get better and we have to prepare and we know that,
again, this is a very good football team. For us to be able to win, we have to be better than we were the week before. That’s really the way we approach it, it’s not anything about the year before or whatnot.”
