BEHIND THE WILDCAT
SI.com's Stewart Mandel on Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and how his Wildcat formation helps players like QB Chris Todd, whose Tigers are 4--0:

The Wildcat offense first entered the national consciousness in 2006 when Malzahn installed it at Arkansas using running backs Felix Jones and Darren McFadden. Now it's a staple of countless college and NFL playbooks.
