Brandon Cox (born October 31, 1983 in Trussville, Alabama), was an American football quarterback, who played collegiately for Auburn University. As Auburn's starting Quarterback from 2005-2007 he guided the Tigers to a 29-9 record and was a member of the winningest Senior class in Auburn history, winning 50 games during their time on the Plains.

Cox attended Hewitt-Trussville High School, the same school as Jay Barker,former quarterback for arch rival University of Alabama. He was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis in his 10th grade year in high school, but fought the disease and continued to play football. Cox, a left-hander, was recruited to Auburn in 2003 but redshirted his freshman year.

After serving one season as backup, Cox stumbled to begin the 2005 season before leading the Tigers to a 9–3 finish. Cox returned his Junior year to lead Auburn to an 11–2 finish, including a victory over Nebraska in the 71st annual Cotton Bowl Classic.
