Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin shares his thoughts on postponed game vs. Texas A&M
Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin discussed his team’s game against Texas A&M being postponed by the SEC on Monday.
Kiffin was disappointed, but held out some hope that the Rebels might be able to find an opponent for this weekend.
“It looks like we’re not going to play,” Kiffin said at his weekly press conference. “I guess there is still a small possibility someone could be moved up, if they don’t have an opponent. We’re still figuring that out, exactly how we’ll do the (practice) schedule. What we have figured out is, because of the COVID, we’re going to keep them (the players) here through the weekend.”
If another SEC game is postponed due to COVID-19, it’s possible Ole Miss could play the unaffected program this weekend.
The Pac-12 just pulled off a similar scenario where Cal and UCLA played on Sunday after their previous opponents suffered a coronavirus outbreak.
Ole Miss is fresh off 59-42 win over South Carolina in which Matt Corral threw six touchdown passes.
If the Rebels can’t find an opponent for this weekend, they will be in action again on Nov. 28 against Mississippi State.
