Kiffin: Ole Miss dealing with COVID-19 outbreak

Coach Lane Kiffin said Wednesday that Ole Miss is dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak but expects the Rebels to play Saturday’s game at Arkansas.

“We’re just trying to manage it the best we can,” Kiffin said, per AL.com.

The first-year Rebels coach did not provide a specific number of players involved. Kiffin said these were the team’s first positive cases since the final week of fall camp in mid-September.

“I hope not,” Kiffin said when asked if the game against the Razorbacks was in jeopardy. “If we were to play today, we could play. So hopefully it stays that way.”

Mississippi (1-2, 1-2 SEC) and Arkansas (1-2, 1-2) are scheduled to kick off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET in Fayetteville, Ark.

Saturday’s SEC clash between No. 10 Florida and LSU in Gainesville, Fla., was postponed on Wednesday due to the Gators’ spike in positive COVID-19 tests.
