Controversy and accusations seem to be continually surfacing around Auburn quarterback Cam Newton but watching him play you would never guess it. Regardless of the possible off field questions, there is no denying that on the field, Newton is one of the best athletes in college football. Saturday’s performance in the SEC Championship game against South Carolina is solid evidence of that as Newton led the Tigers to a crushing defeat of the Gamecocks in possibly his best performance of his collegiate career.

Newton was cleared of any wrong doing by the NCAA recently and in his last game before next weekend’s Heisman Trophy Award announcement, Newton put an exclamation point on an impressive season for Auburn. Saturday he was 17 for 28 passing with 335 yards and 4 touchdown passes. Newton also ran for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Tigers easily defeated South Carolina 56-17. Newton finishes the season with a team leading 2589 yards passing and 1409 yards rushing. As the main source of Auburn’s offense, Newton threw for 28 touchdowns this year and ran for an additional 20 touchdowns.

Could anyone else win the Heisman Trophy?

After Saturday, it’s not looking very likely.

Last week Boise State was out looking as if they’d prove the entire world wrong for doubting their place amongst the top of college football. This week, their toughest opponent over the last 5 years, the Nevada Wolf Pack seemed destined to knock the Broncos from their perch a top the WAC. After Nevada was down 17 points at the half, their defense stifled the Broncos in the second half and quarterback Colin Kaepernick led the team back into the game. Two missed kicks, one in the final seconds of the fourth quarter and one in overtime, cost the Broncos a shot at a national title and leave them hoping for a bowl appearance. The Wolf Pack move to 11-1 on the season and move up to 14th, while Boise State falls to 9th in this week’s poll.

With top ranked Oregon and 2nd ranked Auburn both with a bye week this week, the Boise State Broncos had the opportunity to make a statement this week. Behind Heisman hopeful quarterback Kellen Moore, that’s exactly what they did. Moore threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns on 27 for 38 passing. The Broncos pounded WAC rivals Fresno State with an impressive 51-0 victory. With just a few weeks remaining in the season the Broncos have the biggest uphill battle in the road to a national title due to their conference positioning. Kellen Moore however has shown throughout the season that he deserves attention when it comes time to vote for the Heisman Trophy Award.

While last week’s top three teams Oregon, Auburn and TCU all had relatively close calls this week, fourth ranked Boise State made a statement Friday night by crushing their in state rivals the Idaho Vandals 52-14. The Broncos were led by quarterback Kellen Moore’s 3 touchdown passes and running back Doug Martin’s two touchdowns. The victory moves them back into the third spot in the rankings.

San Diego State’s near comeback against the TCU Horned Frogs shifted enough votes to the Broncos of Boise State to drop the Horned Frogs to fourth this week.

The TCU Horned Frogs proved to everyone they deserve to be near the top of everyone’s list with one of the most impressive offensive outbursts of the season. Quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 355 yards and 3 touchdowns on 21 for 26 passing to lead TCU past a tough Utah team in Utah. The Horned Frogs used their 47-7 victory to move past Boise State and into the third spot in the latest AP Polls. Utah on the other hand, tumbled all the way to 15th after the crushing loss.

LSU also made a jump from 12th to 5th after a victory at home against Alabama who fell out of the top ten, landing at the 11th spot.
