LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Cam Newton drove Auburn into position for
Wes Byrum's 24-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the
eighth-ranked Tigers past Kentucky 37-34 on Saturday.
Newton ran for a career-high 198 yards and four touchdowns and
deftly guided the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) 88
yards in the final 7:22 after the Wildcats had tied it at 34.
The Tigers chewed up the clock behind the steady play of Newton,
converting three third-downs on the final drive. They moved inside
the Kentucky 10 then set the ball up for Byrum.
The senior calmly drilled the fifth game-winner of his career as
his teammates ran onto the field in celebration.
Randall Cobb accounted for four touchdowns for the Wildcats
(3-3, 0-3) - one passing, two running and one receiving - but
couldn't stop Kentucky from dropping its third straight.
