Cam Newton Reinstated For SEC Championship Game

Which is interesting since no one knew that he was declared ineligible in the first place.

The NCAA asked Auburn on Monday to declare Newton ineligible for the SEC Championship game this Saturday.

Auburn and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed that Newton's father, Cecil Newton, worked with the owner of a scouting service, presumably former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers, to market Newton as part of a play-for-pay scheme, which is a violation of NCAA rules.
