OXFORD, Miss. (WLOX) - Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin has some experience going up against Indiana’s head coach Tom Allen, who was the linebackers coach for the Rebels in Kiffin’s first year as offensive coordinator for Alabama back in 2014.
When asked who his opponent reminds him of, Kiffin flashed back to the match-ups between Ole Miss and the Tide just a half-decade ago.
“I think defensively, I feel like it’s a lot of Ole Miss when we were at Alabama,” Kiffin said. “Some of the scheme, especially in the coverage area, those defenses played really hard. Undersized at some positions but forced a lot of turnovers and negative plays, that’s what these guys do.”
