One of the biggest topics across college football as of late has been the Auburn coaching search after the program parted ways with head coach Bryan Harsin earlier this year.

College football analysts Cole Cubelic and Greg McElroy recently weighed in on where things stood with the search and who the top candidates should be.

“It felt like over the weekend that Lane Kiffin was getting a lot of momentum,” Cubelic said. “A lot of people were saying this thing could be done, it might be done. My understanding right now is that Hugh Freeze is having a significant push in this situation. There are some other names that I have heard that are being discussed, are being thrown around… those are the two along with maybe Matt Rhule still there toward the top of the list.”

There’s no question that Auburn is going “big game hunting” as the Tigers look to bounce back from a loss season and rebuild the program to what it can become — as it should.
