When training camp began, Cam Newton declared he wouldn’t let Luke Kuechly or Thomas Davis intercept him while in Spartanburg.

Kuechly got his Sunday, but Davis went the nearly three weeks at Wofford without turning Newton over.

“He did a good job of not allowing me to get one,” Davis said. “The other linebackers got one and that’s what it’s all about. It raises the level of play. It’s something that Cam has to concentrate on every day.

“When he makes a statement like he made that he’s not going to let us get one, he’s going to make sure that it’s not going to happen.”

Davis said Newton only wins bragging rights, which would be enough for the trash-talking quarterback, but just because the team is packing up and leaving Spartanburg doesn’t mean the competition is over.

“It’s not going to end,” Davis said. “We’re going to continue to work and go.”
