Great news to share from Oxford as Lane Kiffin has announced his Ole Miss program did not have a single positive COVID test during the most recent round of testing.

Believe it or not, this is the first time Ole Miss has been able to make this claim since fall camp opened.

“I think we’re almost all the way back,” Kiffin shared on Monday.

One important note, however, Ole Miss still has players unavailable to practice due to quarantine.

Either way, this is a great sign for the Rebels as focus around the Southeastern Conference begins to shift toward the season openers come Saturday, Sept. 26.

As Missouri head coach Eli Drinkwitz noted over the weekend, any Mizzou player that tests positive moving forward will be forced to miss the season opener against Alabama. That’s going to be the case for any and all SEC players as with the season less than two weeks out so keeping the players out of harm’s way could be the difference between a win and a loss in the opener.

Ole Miss faces a big challenge hosting Florida in the 2020 opener but at least the Rebels currently have all hands on deck for the upcoming matchup against the Gators.
