The Greatest Individual Seasons That Will Never Be Topped

We may never see a college football player as dominant as Cam Newton ever again. Don’t get us wrong, we’ve seen plenty of college quarterbacks who have put up gaudy numbers. Just a couple of years ago, Joe Burrow led a high-powered LSU attack with 60 passing touchdowns. Former Heisman winners like Tim Tebow, Lamar Jackson, Johnny Manziel and Marcus Mariota all enjoyed tremendous seasons and careers. However, nobody did it like Cam did in 2010.

Newton played just one year at Auburn and led the Tigers to a 14-0 record (including a National Championship victory over Oregon). Newton did it all for the Tigers, throwing for 30 passing touchdowns and rushing in 20 scores on his own. The bruising QB was able to accomplish this while having next to no other NFL talent on the offensive side of the ball. It was truly a one-man show at Auburn, and nobody had a chance of stopping Newton that year.
