Cam Newton

Cam Newton, “It was an offensive track meet every week because of the quarterbacks,” Chizik said.

Chizik now see the same in the SEC, which is usually known to the defense. But not this season.

“It’s kind of a unique year,” said Chizik. “I think there are a lot of offensive talent in this league, from top to bottom. I think the quarterbacks are very talented.”

Starting with the two on the stage today at Jordan-Hare Stadium, where the seventh ranked Auburn hosts No. 12 Arkansas.

Junior college transfer Cam Newton plays himself in Heisman Trophy contention. Arkansas senior Ryan Mallett is regarded as a high NFL draft pick.

Newton ranks second nationally in pass efficiency; Mallett seventh place. Two other SEC quarterbacks in the top 10: Stephen Garcia South Carolina fifth, eighth Alabama Greg McElroy.

Auburn is averaging 36.7 points per game, 18th best in the country, although the 6-0 Tigers have three SEC foes Clemson and played.

Arkansas is averaging 30 points a game, although the Razorback in the last two weeks have been delayed in a 24-20 loss to Alabama and a 24-17 victory over Texas A & M.

“Of course, he’s a great quarterback,” Chizik said Mallett. “Our challenge is enormous. We have played against some really good competition. If you have played against South Carolina and Kentuckys some really powerful firepower in the attack, it helped us.”

Arkansas has to win to stay in the SEC West Division race. Auburn to win to keep pace with the undefeated LSU, 4-0 in the SEC and which plays at Auburn next week.

Alabama and LSU will have something to say about the SEC West. But Auburn and Arkansas have the best quarterbacks division.
