Malzahn-Oregeron-CutcliffeUSA TODAY SportsGus Malzahn, Ed Orgeron and David Cutcliffe have been impressive this season.

Another week of college football in the books, and another shakeup of the BCS standings. While Auburn kept its conference title hopes alive with an improbable Hail Mary-led win over Georgia, USC maintained its hot streak with a big upset against Stanford and Duke took command of the ACC Coastal Division with a win against Miami.

The 2013 college football season certainly has not lacked drama. And we can in part thank several turnaround and upstart programs for the excitement, including the Tigers, Trojans and Blue Devils, whose coaches (or current coaches, at least) deserve a big pat on the back for their retooling efforts.

Which coach has done the best job this season?

In this week's "No Huddle," Insider's panel of experts debates that topic, as well as other key questions heading into Week 13, including how many (if any) teams will finish the regular season unbeaten, who should win comeback player of the year, and which teams will emerge victorious in matchups between Baylor-Oklahoma State and Arizona State-UCLA.

KC Joyner: Gus Malzahn. It would be enough if his only achievement was turning around an Auburn program that reached a 15-year nadir in terms of wins in a season (3-9, 0-8 in SEC in 2012), but he can also add to that some of the most creative play calling in college football.
