Tigers rallying around Newton

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- We've heard questions for the past two weeks about how Cam Newton would react and how Auburn's team would react in the face of the NCAA's ongoing investigation into Newton's recruitment.

Newton demonstrated on the field two weeks ago against Georgia that he's not easily knocked off his game.

And in a lot ways, the team has seemed to rally around Newton.

Just before the Tigers went to the locker room Friday one final time before coming out to start the game, Newton gathered the entire team around him and was as animated as ever.
