Auburn’s season is off to a mediocre start with the Tigers, who were a top-10 ranked team in the preseason and are no longer in the Top 25.
Auburn has lost two games in a row — to Mississippi State and Tennessee — to give the Tigers a 4-3 record.

“No. I feel like I’m coaching for my players in the next game. We have to finish this thing the right way. I really expect us to do that. Are we disappointed? Yes.

Malzahn’s buyout, according to Saturday Down South, is just more than 32 million.
