The Carolina Panthers drafted Cam Newton with the first overall pick of the 2011 NFL draft. Newton has been a standout talent since his youth. A three-sport athlete as a youngster, Newton gave up baseball and basketball at 14 to pursue a career in football.

The No. 8 Auburn Tigers (3-0) will travel to College Station, Texas, this weekend and take on the No. 17 Texas A&M Aggies (2-1). It will be the eighth meeting between the two teams since A&M joined the conference in 2012.

Revving up the running game, No. 8 Auburn rushed for 467 yards and six touchdowns in a 55-16 homecoming win over Kent State Saturday in the Tigers’ tune-up for SEC play.

The Auburn Tigers are 2-0 on the season and ranked No. 8 in the country by the Associated Press. They are also one of only six teams in the nation with a quality win over a top-25 opponent. 


Auburn defeated Tulane 24-6 at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday. Quarterback Bo Nix saw most of the action behind center and 19-37 for 207 yards passing. Nix also ran the ball twice for 16 yards. Backup quarterback Joey Gatewood rushed six times for 30 yards. Defensively Marion Davidson had s…

The lexicon of sports is full of wonderfully awful clichés like: “We have to play them one game at a time,” and “We must win the line of scrimmage” and “That guy really gives 110%.” 

Nine years ago, Auburn beat Oregon on a last-second field goal. Saturday night, quarterback Bo Nix didn’t want to put it on the kicker again. Instead, the true freshman tossed a 26-yard touchdown pass to Seth Williams with nine seconds left to lead the Tigers past Oregon, 27-21, in the seaso…

Basketball is always the first thing on Bruce Pearl’s mind. As the head coach of Auburn’s men’s basketball team, which advanced to its first Final Four in history this past season, Pearl has a lot of expectations to live up to.

The picks are in. On Friday, following the conclusion of SEC Media Days, the SEC released the media’s predictions for the upcoming season, and both Auburn and Alabama were represented well on the three preseason All-SEC teams.

It seems success is coming out of Auburn’s ears these days in the sports world, so it seems incredibly fitting the Lake Martin Auburn Club would ask AU director of athletics Allen Greene to be its guest speaker this year.
