Ole Miss trolls Tennessee on Twitter for 'Checker Neyland' campaign
Tennessee has announced that it will have a “Checker Neyland” game this week when Ole Miss comes to town.
Not to miss an opportunity for a troll job, the Ole Miss football Twitter account posted a picture of Ole Miss playing chess, and Tennessee checkers, with the simple caption, “Let’s play.”
With Lane Kiffin’s return to Knoxville combined with Tennessee recent surge of offense, Tennessee announced that it sold out of tickets for the game on Tuesday afternoon, which marked the program’s first sellout since the Georgia game on Sept. 30, 2017.
The game features the 2 fastest offenses in the Power Five. Ole Miss and Tennessee run 2.89 and 2.87 offensive plays per minute, respectively. Those are the 2 highest rates among Power Five teams.
Tennessee is riding a two-game winning streak, and has outscored opponents 107-44 during that stretch, including back-to-back 28-point first quarters for the first time in modern program history. Ole Miss enters the contest following a 52-51 victory over then-No. 13 Arkansas last Saturday in Oxford.
