OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Lane Kiffin has signed a new contract to remain at Mississippi, the school announced Tuesday.
Details of the deal were not released. The 47-year-old Kiffin has gone 23-12 in three seasons with the Rebels, who lost four of their last five games to finish the regular season at 8-4.
Mississippi coach Lane Kiffin says he has informed school officials he will be staying at Ole Miss, putting an end to speculation that he was the leading candidate to fill the head coaching vacancy at Auburn.
Lane Kiffin normally isn't one to mince words, but his description of the Egg Bowl is definitely on the diplomatic side.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — If recent history holds true, fans who brave projected below-freezing temperatures Saturday night at Razorback Stadium may be in store for a thriller when Arkansas and Mississippi meet.
Lane Kiffin has intimate but limited experience with how his old boss Nick Saban handled regular-season losses.
The year was 2007 and Alabama was still looking more like a college football has-been than a program on the cusp of a dynasty.
Nick Saban's first regular season as the coach of the Crimson Tide ended with a four-game losing streak that included a loss to Louisiana-Monroe.
Bryce Young was 9 years old the last time Alabama played a regular-season game without national championship implications.
That was five national titles ago.
Now, thanks to two ever-so-slender defeats — by a total of four points — Young and the 10th-ranked Crimson Tide (7-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) are almost certainly back in that scenario for the first time since that 2010 team went 10-3.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Although consistency for four quarters continues to be a top priority for No. 16 Mississippi, the Rebels relied on a 28-point outburst in the second quarter to cruise to a win against Tulsa on Saturday.
Mississippi’s defense is justifiably flush with confidence heading into its biggest challenge so far.
The 16th-ranked Rebels, who have only allowed 13 points in the first three games, are set to host Tulsa and the nation’s leading passer Davis Brin on Saturday.
If you want to break through at the top level of college football, it's essential to have skilled players, an established culture and time to get both.
Still, year after year, fans, boosters and administrators expect their team to celebrate a title, no matter how young the program is — even in the rugged Southeastern Conference.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi coach Lane Kiffin said quarterback Luke Altmyer should be able to play against Georgia Tech, but he isn't saying who will start for the 20th-ranked Rebels.
Altmyer sustained an upper-body injury in the second quarter of the game against Central Arkansas and didn't play in the second half of the Rebels' 59-3 win.

The 10th-ranked Rebels' Heisman Trophy contender posted on social media Friday night that Saturday's game against Vanderbilt will be his finale at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Lane Kiffin thinks there are plenty of recent college football cautionary tales to help No. 10 Mississippi avoid looking past Vanderbilt.
