After finishing the 2009-10 season with an 8-5 record, the Auburn Tigers handed the keys to their offense to junior transfer quarterback Cam Newton for the 2010-11 season. As one of the most athletically gifted college quarterbacks in NCAA history, Newton took his Tigers to the upper echelon of college football in 2010. After defeating South Carolina 56-17 in the SEC Championship game, the Tigers were selected to play in the BSC National Championship game versus Oregon. On January 10, 2011 Cam Newton led his team to a 22-19 victory of the Oregon Duck completing their undefeated 14-0 season. For his spectacular play, Newton won numerous national awards including the 2010 Heisman Trophy. Newton was later selected with the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. Newton has signed his name in black ink on this BCS Championship commemorative football. Cam Newton’s signature is guaranteed 100% authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five-Step Authentication Process.
