From AU Game notes:
Junior quarterback Cam Newton leads the
SEC and ranks 11th nationally (third among
quarterbacks) in rushing, averaging 122.9 yards
per game. His numbers are even better in SEC
games, as he averages 158.0 yards per game and
has 10 rushing touchdowns - both league bests.
He is the first player in school history to rush for
three or more touchdowns in three consecutive
SEC games, and the second player in school history
to rush for three or more touchdowns in
back-to-back games, joining Joe Cribbs (1979).
In just seven games, Newton already has the
sixth-best single-season rushing total by a quarterback
in SEC history with 860 yards. With just
over half the regular season completed, Newton
is on pace to finish the regular season with 1,474
yards rushing. The SEC record for yards rushing
by a quarterback in a single season is 1,006 by
Auburn’s Jimmy Sidle in 1963.
Newton, who leads the SEC in rushing by
174 yards over his nearest competitor, also has a
chance to become the first quarterback to lead
the SEC in rushing since Sidle in 1963.
The top 10 single-season rushing totals by a
quarterback in SEC history are:
1. 1,006 Jimmy Sidle (Auburn) 1963
2. 910 Tim Tebow (Florida) 2009
3. 909 Mike Fanuzzi (Kentucky) 1974
4. 895 Tim Tebow (Florida) 2007
5. 870 Andy Johnson (Georgia) 1971
6. 860 Cam Newton (Auburn) 2010
7. 772 Travis Tidwell (Auburn) 1946
8. 771 Derrick Ramsey (Kentucky) 1976
9. 724 Ray Goff (Georgia) 1976
10. 707 Matt Jones (Arkansas) 2003
TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
Cam is not going to break the record he will SHATTER IT!!!
With still half the season to go, I would agree.
