To be exact, this online sportsbook matchup could be one of the most underrated on the card.  Thus, betting action should be split evenly.

Kiffin Leads Old Miss to Historic Season

Snoop Conner ran for two touchdowns, and No. 8 Mississippi scored 21 straight points to beat Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl.  Also, Matt Corral ran for a touchdown and passed for 229 yards to spark the Rebels.  Corral was 25 of 33 with an interception.  The Rebels had 388 yards of total offense.  In turn, Connor scored twice on 1-yard runs during the decisive outburst.

At the onset of Lane Kiffin’s coaching career was a case of too much too soon.  The now-late Raiders Owner Al Davis hired Kiffin as his head coach based on Kiffin’s successful tenure as a USC assistant under Pete Carroll.  The partnership quickly imploded.

Baby Kiff matriculated to Tennessee

From there, Baby Kiff matriculated to Tennessee, where he had a better-than-expected rookie season as head coach.  But just when Big Orange thought they had a winner in town, Kiffin bolted for USC.  Subsequently, the departure in the middle of the night caused riots in Knoxville.  Upon his arrival at USC, Kiffin learned of NCAA sanctions that would cripple his ability to build a full roster.  As a result, he ended up fired on the tarmac of LAX a few years later.

Kiffin was considered damaged goods when Nick Saban took him in to modernize the Alabama offense.  However, Kiffin delivered the goods with an astounding overhaul the made the Crimson Tide the top attack in the SEC.

While at FAU, Kiffin won two CUSA titles and was quickly scooped up by Ole Miss.  During his time with the Rebels, Baby Kiff has shown improved maturity to go with on-field success.  Top-tier programs are taking notice of the former man-child.  Also, athletic directors are hearing from fans that demand Kiffin’s hiring.
