Last Week: 18-of-24 passing for 209 yards and two TDs; 11 rushes for 45 yards; one reception for 20 yards and one TD in 51-31 win over Ole Miss
Season: 108-of-162 passing for 1,573 yards, 15 TDs and five INTs; 168 rushes for 1,122 yards and 14 TDs; two receptions for 42 yards and one TD
So the SEC's leading rusher had his string of 100-yard games snapped, but Newton added something new to his resume as he caught a 20-yard TD pass from QB-turned-WR Kodi Burns. Auburn seemed intent on giving Newton's legs a breather after he had a combined 81 rushes the last three weeks as he had 21 pass attempts (tying his season high) by halftime. Expect more of the same Saturday as the Tigers take a break from the SEC schedule.
Next Up: Saturday vs. Chattanooga
