In this 2020 college football season, head coaches are having to find ways to gameplan against COVID-19 outbreaks within their teams while simultaneously preparing for upcoming opponents.

Luckily for Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss, that balancing act appears to have gotten a little easier within the last couple of weeks.

Kiffin was asked about the team’s situation with positive COVID-19 tests and proceeding to knock on the wood on his podium before giving his answer.

“Now two weeks in a row with zero (cases), so been very fortunate here,” said Kiffin. “Especially since these are the two most important (weeks) because you would obviously be out for the opener if you got it. So, hopefully, it will be three weeks in a row.”

As a follow-up, Kiffin was asked if the program had any players currently left in COVID-19 protocol.

“We do not,” said the first-year head coach.

When you consider all the issues the program has faced simply fielding a team with competitive depth during camp due to COVID testing, this is great news for the Rebels.

Ole Miss will host Florida on Saturday to kick off the season, with a 12 pm ET kickoff time on ESPN.
