By leading Auburn to a come-from-behind win over Alabama today, Cameron Newton has clinched the 76th Heisman Trophy.
There is nothing that can happen on the field that will cause the current dynamics of the race to change. Auburn faces South Carolina in the SEC title game next week, but Newton just has to hold serve. This race is all over, but for the voting.
It’s possible that at some time in the future, there will be repercussions relating to NCAA violations, but that has nothing to do with the here and now and it won’t stop Newton from making his acceptance speech in New York at 8:55 p.m. on December 11.
Congrats to Cam Newton, Heisman winner to be.
