Even though he was at Auburn only one season, Cam Newton put his stamp on the Iron Bowl rivalry unlike anyone before, leading the Tigers to a comeback 28-27 win in Tuscaloosa and going on to win the Heisman Trophy and BCS National Championship.

Now the quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, Newton, who would come back to Auburn and graduate after taking off-season classes, is still reminding everyone that his heart belongs with the Tigers.

No. 6 Auburn takes on No. 1 Alabama in one of the biggest Iron Bowls in history on Saturday in Jordan-Hare Stadium with the SEC West title and College Football Playoff implications on the line.
