Mark Ingram wasn't exactly a new face in the Heisman Predictor standings, but he didn't appear in the 2010 versions until very recently. Every week, someone will rise as others fall.

This week's new face is Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton. The Florida transfer (he was once Tim Tebow's backup) has led Auburn to a 5-0 start, accounting for at least two touchdowns in each game. He enters the Predictor standings after throwing for a career-high 245 yards and three touchdowns against Louisiana-Monroe.

Newton debuts at second place in the standings, but he has a lot of work to do.
