Chizik: Newton is eligible to play against Georgia

AUBURN, AL (WBRC) - After repeated allegations against Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, Coach Gene Chizik reassures fans that Newton is eligible to play Saturday.

Two new claims were made against Newton this week. One was about academic dishonesty while he attended the University of Florida. Florida officials deny those allegations.

The other claim is over questions about his recruitment at Mississippi State.

The NCAA is reviewing the matter.
