Auburn coach Gene Chizik beat the questioners to the punch during his portion of the SEC teleconference Wednesday.
“Cameron Newton will be playing Saturday against the Georgia Bulldogs,’’ Chizik said before he entertained questions.

This comes the day after ESPN reported via anonymous sources that Cam Newton and his father were seeking “more than a scholarship” from Mississippi State to bring the QB to Starkville.
