In early August, Ole Miss became the first program in all of college football to reach 100% vaccination status. Kiffin appeared on College Gameday this morning and stressed the importance of the vaccine as, so far, no other positive cases have been reported. With the entire team vaccinated, close contacts, which Kiffin said would include quarterback Matt Corral, will not have to sit out.
Monday’s Chick-Fil-A Kickoff from Atlanta gets underway at 7 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
