Which TV channel will broadcast the match?
The Ole Miss-Austin Peay game will not be shown on television.
YOUNG COACHES: Walden, 30 from Austin Peay, is the youngest head coach in Division I. Kiffin can relate since he was 31 when he coached the Oakland Raiders, the youngest boss in the NFL of the modern era. He then became the youngest head coach of FBS in Tennessee in 2008, at age 33.
“There is no recipe for creating experience and I have learned that is life,” Kiffin said. “It’s coaching, parenting, whatever your job. It takes experience to go through things and learn how you are going to handle them.
RISE OF THE CORRAL: Ole quarterback Miss Matt Corral is expected to climb another spot in the school’s career rankings. He only needs 75 yards to tie Jevan Snead for 7th (5,394 yards).
THE GREAT DRUMMOND GAME: Wide receiver Dontario Drummond hit career highs with nine catches and 177 yards against Louisville. It may reflect additional chemistry with Corral.
“I feel like we have a strong chemistry,” Drummond said. “I play games in training so I am confident that I will make games in games for him.”
ABOUT AUSTIN PEAY: In the preseason vote, the governors finished tied for second in the Ohio Valley Conference with Southeast Missouri and behind Murray State. They beat both teams in the spring. Quarterback Draylen Ellis is the preseason offensive player of the year and nickel-back Kordell Jackson was the pick to win the defensive honor.
WOOD : Kiffin looks forward to the pre-game champions ‘march through The Grove, the Rebels’ popular tailgating area. The Grove was closed to tailgaters for its first season due to the pandemic.
“Excited for the first walk we had through The Grove,” Kiffin said. “This is my first time setting foot in The Grove. I am personally excited for this.
