The Auburn Tigers are in the midst of major changes as the 2021 season comes to a close. First year head coach Bryan Harsin led the Tigers to a 6-6 record and is now making changes. Harsin fired his offensive coordinator, lost his starting quarterback and appeared to lose his starting running back to the transfer portal.

However, Harsin has reportedly convinced his top offensive weapon to return to Auburn and rejoin the Tigers' football program. According to Justin Hokanson of On3 Sports, Bigsby has changed his mind and will now rejoin the Auburn football team.

The former SEC Freshman of the Year in 2020 rushed for 1,003 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2021 as a sophomore. Bigsby cleared 100 yards rushing in five times in 2021 and has been the Tigers' most reliable weapon the last two seasons.

Bigsby's most memorable play this season came in the Iron Bowl when he failed to go down in the field of play. Bigsby was drug out of bounds by Jordan Battle, saving time on the clock for the Crimson Tide to complete an improbable comeback.

Bigsby and the Tigers now turn their attention to the Birmingham Bowl where they will play the Houston Cougars on Tuesday, Dec. 28 at 11 a.m.
