There are a lot of games you expect to be blowouts. The SEC title game is not one of them. Then again, past title games didn't have Cameron Newton under center. Thanks to his six-touchdown, 408-yard performance Saturday, the Auburn Tigers breezed past South Carolina and into the BCS National Championship Game. Therefore, our panel had no choice but to put Newton at No. 1 for the second straight week.

Also making waves were Tom Brady, LeBron James, Kemba Walker and Michael Vick.

In a week in which tons of players went off, what do you make of our rankings? Did the panel miss someone or place a certain athlete too high? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
