Auburn-Georgia: Watch Cam Newton jump into student section with shirtless Bruce Pearl

How big is No. 2 Georgia at No. 18 Auburn?


Former Auburn Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton posted a poll on his Instagram story asking if he should watch The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, which is being live streamed on fuboTV and Paramount+, from the student section?


He did just that and had some pretty impressive company: Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl.


The second-ranked Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) is fresh off two straight league shutouts and virtually unscathed defensively this season.

Auburn (4-1, 1-0) managed its first win at LSU since 1999, thanks largely to Bo Nix’s ability to make plays on the move. Now they face the nation’s top defense, a group that has only allowed one meaningless touchdown late in a blowout win over South Carolina.

Pearl has been very visible this week, coming off his team’s Tipoff at Toomer’s event. On a court constructed at the intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue, Auburn’s men’s and women’s basketball teams showcased their talents for jam-packed fans.

On Saturday, Pearl went shirtless to the delight of fans. It isn’t the first time.

As a first-year coach at Auburn in 2014, Pearl spent some time in a dunk tank in front of the student center. In 2007 and in his second year as the head coach at Tennessee, Pearl went shirtless at a Lady Vols’ game with his torso painted orange and marked with a light blue “V” to help spell out “GO VOLS” with four players, including his son, and a team manager.

Meanwhile, Newton played at Auburn in 2010, leading the Tigers to a national championship and undefeated season in addition to securing the Heisman Trophy.
