  Lane Kiffin wants Elijah Moore to break records. "I thought Elijah was really special from looking at film last year and getting to work with him," Kiffin said. "When I first met him I told him 'Hey, you've got to work harder than anyone in the country because you're going to shatter the school record for most catches in a year." Moore is well on his way to set the records Kiffin wants him to. The junior receiver caught 10 passes for 227 yards in Ole Miss' 51-35 loss against No. 6 Florida Saturday. He finished six yards shy of tying A.J. Brown's record for most receiving yards in a single game in Ole Miss history and had another huge play taken off the board too. He caught a slip pass and ran 22 yards after the catch for a touchdown but that play was taken off the board because of a holding penalty.

Kiffin's confidence in Moore's ability to shatter records relates to what he was able to do with Cooper and others. Kiffin coached Cooper to Alabama's single-season receptions and receiving yards records and did the same for pass-catcher Marqise Lee at USC. "As you saw today, had we had a full 12 games I think he would've done that," Kiffin said of Moore. "It'll be a lot harder obviously with 10 conference games and no non-conference games." When asked about Kiffin's expectations on him, Moore said he doesn't care about individual records. His team lost. That's all that matters. No matter how well the offense played, that wasn't good enough. But that's not necessarily true. This performance was a stark departure from the way Ole Miss' offense operated in 2019. Last year's Rebels were as run-first as any team in the SEC. They finished with the No. 9 rushing offense in the country and the No. 102 passing offense. They only passed for more than 250 yards as a team in one game, and that came in a losing effort. - The Clarion Ledger
