Kirk Herbstreit’s top performers list is out after Week 9 of college football action, and a pair of SEC coaches are on it this time around.

No. 2 on Herbstreit’s list is Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin. The Tigers defeated Ole Miss 31-20; should both they and Alabama win the remainder of their games, then the Iron Bowl, set for Nov. 27 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, will be played for a trip to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. And the Tigers would love nothing more than to end the College Football Playoff hopes of their archrival in front of their home fans on the Plains.

Mississippi State defensive coordinator Zach Arnett is 4th on the list after the Bulldogs’ terrific defensive effort against Kentucky. The Bulldogs picked Will Levis off 3 times and held him to just 150 yards on 17-of-28 passing in a 31-17 win at Davis Wade Stadium.
