Another coaching debut in Oxford this weekend as Lane Kiffin leads Ole Miss into battle against fifth ranked Florida.
The Rebels and Gators haven’t taken the same field since 2015 when Kiffin was still at Alabama and Dan Mullen was still at Mississippi State.
Twenty-five percent fan capacity at the Vaught is certainly an odd first impression, but it’s the last three years Kiffin spent at Florida Atlantic he says is preparing him for the moment. “Well, I think it’ll be strange for our fans, for our returning players. I kind of joked the other day, but really I just spent three years in Conference USA, so I’ve been kind of used to social distancing crowds at a lot of places, so I don’t think it’ll be that strange for me.”
Ole Miss and the Gators will kick things off at 11 a.m. Saturday from Oxford.
