Monday, Kiffin was asked about the early onset of an outbreak within the program.
“It is manageable,” he said at the time. “My fear always when you get a few, then it starts trickling. Who were they around and even if they’re not roommates. I really like obviously when it’s zero like it was last week.”
The Rebels were scheduled to take on LSU this weekend, but now have the weekend off after a recent reshuffling of the schedule by the SEC.
