Cam Newton’s Brother Leads Howard Past UNLV in Largest Point-Spread Upset in History (VIDEO)
Don’t look now, but there’s another Newton out there making noise in the college sports world.
Caylin Newton, the younger brother of Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton, had himself quite a day after he accounted for 330 total yards of offense and three touchdowns to lead his 45-point underdog Howard squad to a stunning 43-40 win Saturday night against the UNLV Rebels.
This game was also the debut for new Bison coach Mike London, who completely ruined the start of UNLV’s 50th season of play with the biggest upset in college football history based on point spread.

To put this in perspective, a $100 bet on Howard to win outright would have paid $55,000.
“Last night, he made a name for himself,” Howard coach Mike London said about his QB. “Caylin did a good job of running the offense and made some fantastic runs, often with guys hanging on him.”
“We’re all ruled by the psychology of results. In terms of culture, perception and being competitive this is huge,” London told the AP in a phone interview. “To go on the road, cross country and play these guys toe to toe with their allotment of 80-plus scholarship guys and with my 57 plus is big.”
