USC Saturday Buzz: Lane Kiffin Makes Splashy Debut At Mississippi

Former USC coach tries to keep pace with Florida

SEC football is back. And so is Lane Kiffin.

And it just wouldn't be Kiffin without some attention-grabbing features to kick off his debut.

Like the money bag on the sideline given to the player who gets a turnover.


John Baxter might be proud of that.

And Kiffin arrived at the game in a Mississippi baseball jersey.

On the field, things have been uneven. The Rebels were tied, 14-14, with Florida but then fell behind 35-14.

Mississippi cut the lead to 44-29 on a TD pass by former USC commit Matt Corral but the Gators scored again and lead 51-29.

Final: 51-35, Florida. The Gators had 642 yards in total offense, a school-record vs. an SEC opponent. No, Monte Kiffin is not the defensive coordinator.
