Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen wasn’t thrilled about being second to speak during the postgame presser.
Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin was allowed to speak first as his team lost 17-13 to Houston, but Holgorsen thinks it should have been the other way around.
“Yeah, we need to have separate press conferences,” Holgorsen said. “Ya know, we won the game and I’m just standing out there for 20 minutes. I don’t quite understand that. I’d get that together.”

Houston staged a fourth-quarter comeback against Auburn in the Birmingham Bowl and pulled off the victory. Quarterback Clayton Tune was a big help in that and finished with 283 yards through the air with two touchdowns and one interception.
The college football world had some clever reactions to Holgorsen doing this.
Very on brand from Dana Holgorsen. https://t.co/ngo0MOF4s2

Dana Holgorsen is a vibe.
Left a Power 5 school to Group of 5 school and now he’s yelling at a coach to wrap up his presser after beating him.
I love this stupid sport. https://t.co/aF8ti6nzuA

Dana Holgorsen is the perfect example of a guy you’d like to hang out with but wouldn’t want to be your team’s coach https://t.co/7yHoDuUHXX
