ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) -  Auburn University remains undefeated and beat the South Carolina Gamecocks 56 to 17 in the SEC Championship game Saturday at the Georgia Dome.

Quarterback Cam Newton had six touchdowns- two rushing, four passing.

Newton was declared eligible to play Wednesday by the NCAA, after controversy surrounding his recruitment at Auburn and Mississippi State.

The Tigers will face the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship game January 10, 2011 in Glendale, Arizona.

Oregon beat arch rival Oregon State Saturday, 37 to 20.
