Trayvon Reed, the 7-foot-1 center who was not allowed to enroll at Maryland after his arrest outside a College Park convenience store last month, has committed to play at Auburn, according to multiple media reports. Reed, who was set to become part of a top-10 recruiting class that will be the Terps' first in the Big Ten Conference, was arrested July 30 for theft, resisting arrest and second-degree assault after an incident with an undercover police officer. Because the officer suffered two broken fingers in the altercation, one of Reed's two assault charges is considered a felony.

The allegations against Auburn quarterback Cam Newton continue to proliferate. ESPN.com reported late Tuesday night, citing two anonymous sources, that Newton and his father discussed a pay-for-play plan with Mississippi State recruiters. School representatives are said to have relayed that information to SEC compliance officials in January. One of ESPN's unnamed sources, described only as a "recruiter," said Cecil Newton told him it would take "more than a scholarship" to secure a commitment from his son. Auburn coach Gene Chizik said that Cam Newton will start for the second-ranked Tigers against Georgia on Saturday but said nothing about the latest round of accusations.

Woodbridge (Va.) coach Karibi Dede played at Auburn with five cornerbacks that went on to be selected in the NFL draft. He also later served as a graduate assistant on Auburn's coaching staff. He has seen firsthand what it takes to be a successful corner at the college level. And to Dede, new Maryland commit Mike Majette has the tools to be productive. “Mike has the tools to progress at the collegiate level and the ability to one day play on Sunday,” Dede said during a telephone interview.

Ducks superior, but … Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times It might be the most exciting and high-scoring game in BCS title-game history. Auburn would have the two best players on the field in quarterback Cam Newton and defensive lineman Nick Fairley, but Oregon is the more balanced team. Oregon might score 60 on Auburn's defense, but Auburn might push 50 on Oregon. A turnover here or there and we could be looking at 55-55 headed into overtime.

Some college students spend a lot of their time playing video games. Police say Auburn lacrosse player Zachary Burgess decided he'd rather try to live one.

Police said that during questioning, Burgess told an officer that he “wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.” Burgess faces one count of theft of a motor vehicle, nine counts of hit-and-run and simple kidnapping.

Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran for one, leading No. 2 Auburn back from a 24-point deficit Friday for a stunning 28-27 victory over No. 9 Alabama that kept the Tigers on course for a shot at the national championship. Auburn (12-0, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) trailed 21-0 before it even picked up a first down, and Alabama (9-3, 5-3) had a 314-2 lead in total yards at one point in the first half. But Newton, with the signature performance in what has become a season of controversy, rallied the Tigers for a victory that left the Tuscaloosa, Ala., crowd of more than 101,000 in stunned disbelief when it was over.

When Glenelg offensive lineman David Robbins decided to visit Florida State last month, he just wanted to see what a national championship football program looked like from the inside. He left Tallahassee, Fla., thinking that he might be able to play there. Four days after his March 20 visit, the junior got an offer from Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher. Last week, Robbins accepted. “If you had asked me a week before the visit, I would have said we were just going down there for the trip.

MOBILE, Ala. - Auburn cornerback Chris Davis became an Iron Bowl hero when he caught a flubbed Alabama field-goal attempt and dashed the length of the field for the game-winning touchdown against the Crimson Tide. Ever since the game-changing play during a dramatic 34-28 victory over Alabama on Dec. 3, Davis has dealt with the sudden fame from his role in toppling the two-time defending national champions. It's also increased Davis' name recognition with NFL teams as the All-Southeastern Conference second-team selection tries to improve his draft stock.

Dressed in the traditional garb of a Civil War Union soldier, Vince Vaise led the two dozen marchers through Mount Auburn, Baltimore's oldest African-American cemetery. Sword drawn, and a stoic look upon his face, Vaise and his followers snaked through the overgrown grass Sunday before stopping at a small white gravestone, which he later explained belonged to Peter Purviance, the city's first freed slave to join the Union army. On this eve of Memorial Day, Vaise and the small group spent the afternoon honoring African-American veterans from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

AUBURN, Ala. -- After hearing Eric Ramsey's secretly recorded tapes implicating Auburn coach Pat Dye and his football staff of committing NCAA violations, Auburn University president-elect William Muse last night called for Ramsey to give the tapes to the NCAA.The NCAA is investigating Ramsey's charges that he received money and other improper benefits -- with Dye's unspoken approval -- from Auburn assistant coaches and a booster during his playing career from 1986-90."What Ramsey ought to do, if he wants to bring the investigation to a close, is turn the tapes over to the NCAA," Muse said.

AUBURN, Ala. -- The day after Terry Bowden was hired as Auburn's football coach a year ago next week, he sat in the lead car of the town's Christmas parade. He was the parade's grand marshal and the town's great question mark."It was all curiosity," recalled Bowden. "Everybody was asking, 'Who is this guy? What's he look like?' There was skepticism. It was all a surprise. Most of them knew who I was because of my father, because I had coached in the state [at Division I-AA Samford]. But it was a real concern."

Five years after burying his father, Samuel W. Moore could no longer find the grave. That was 1976, and Mount Auburn Cemetery, one of the oldest African-American burial grounds in the country, was overcome with stickerbushes, weeds and garbage — a fate unbecoming the scores of people buried there who were pioneers of Baltimore's black community. After decades of neglect, interrupted occasionally by well-meaning but ultimately fruitless cleanup efforts, the cemetery in South Baltimore was officially rededicated Monday, due in large part to the labors of an unlikely group: state prison inmates.
