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.
