2 stats that stand out for Cam Newton are yards per attempt and third down efficiency. Auburn was 3rd in the entire country in third down effectiveness and 7th in total offense despite not being a pass first team. That is an accomplishment in the sec. The yards per attempt numbers are even more impressive when you consider that Auburn runs quick screens and set plays. He produces big yardage by buying time and getting the ball accurately down the field. Third down effectiveness played a big part in this win Auburn was 9 of 17 and kept the Oregon offense off the field. Steve Mcnair circa 1995.
