The Birmingham News reports these other tidbits in its "Extra Points" in today's paper:

  • Auburn's 440 yards rushing were the most ever in an SEC game and the fifth most in school history.
  • The Tigers' 86 yards passing was the fewest in an SEC victory since beating Mississippi State 16-14 in 2001.
  • Cam Newton set an SEC record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback.  He has 1,077 in just eight games.  He broke the school record for a quarterback by passing Jimmy Sidle's 1,006 set in 1963. (According to CBS' in-game statistics, this is an SEC record as well.)
  • Newton has five of Auburn's Top 50 rushing games in history, though he's played in just eight games.
  • Newton's 14 rushing touchdowns are three shy of the school record.
  • Darvin Adams had three catches for 33 yards to move to 10th in all-time yardage for an Auburn receiver.  He has 1,467 yards.
