Matt Leinart offers high praise for Lane Kiffin, makes Ole Miss prediction
Ole Miss was picked to finish fourth in the SEC West by the media before the season began, but the Rebels have rattled off an 8-2 record already, thanks to Saturday’s win over Texas A&M, and have Vanderbilt and Mississippi State left on the schedule.
Lane Kiffin’s team has made a believer out of skeptics, and college football analysts like Matt Leinart, who predicted that Ole Miss would win both of those remaining games.
Kiff likely going to finish 10-2. What a year in Oxford.

Kiffin and Leinart have a mixed relationship, as Kiffin apparently once offered a Florida Atlantic scholarship to Leinart’s son, but the 2 have also sparred about College Football Playoff rankings, as 3 years ago Leinart said 2-loss LSU should not be ranked No. 7, but Kiffin defended the Tigers because they play in the SEC.
