Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss are 5-0 on the season and ranked 9th in the latest AP poll.

They’ll look to move to 6-0 on Saturday against struggling Auburn in an SEC West matchup.

Kiffin did say Wednesday that he is concerned with defending Tigers quarterback Robby Ashford when he gets out of the pocket.

“He’s an elite scrambler. … You’ve got to stay in rush lanes and tackle the guy,” Kiffin said during the weekly SEC coaches teleconference.

Kiffin was also asked Wednesday about his team’s own dynamic rushing attack, which is spearheaded by the running back combination of Quinshon Jenkins and Zach Evans.

“We’ve been fortunate to have very good players and run the ball really well,” Kiffin said. “Just for some reason, we’re sometimes considered a passing team.”

Also on Wednesday, Kiffin was asked about starting quarterback Jaxson Dart.

The USC transfer passed for 448 yards and 3 touchdowns in Saturday’s win over Vanderbilt but also threw a couple of interceptions that his coach wasn’t happy about

“I’d really like him to not throw the ball to the other team,” Kiffin said. “That would be a big improvement from last week. … He has done really, really good things. (The interceptions have) been the glaring thing.”

The Rebels home game with the Tigers on Saturday is set for a noon (ET) kick off on ESPN. Ole Miss is a 14.5-point favorite.
