What’s not to like about the Auburn-South Carolina matchup on Saturday in the Georgia Dome?
The drama surrounding Auburn quarterback Cam Newton only thickened Wednesday when the NCAA announced Newton’s eligibility had been reinstated after Auburn briefly declared him ineligible Tuesday for violating NCAA amateurism rules.
That means game on for Newton and Tigers, who can advance to the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 10 with a win over the Gamecocks.
“We haven’t gotten ahead of ourselves all year, and we’re not going to start now,” Auburn senior safety Zac Etheridge said. “The only thing that matters is South Carolina, nothing else.”
