Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss cheerleader girlfriend went viral this weekend after his loss to Alabama.
Coming into Saturday, one of the more highly-anticipated showdowns of the day featured Kiffin’s Rebels facing off against Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide.
With the latter group having something of a down year in 2023, many wondered if this was going to finally be Kiffin’s opportunity to get one over on his old boss. It wasn’t.
When everything was said and done, Alabama walked out Saturday with an easy 24-10 victory.
It wasn’t all bad news for Kiffin, though. While he didn’t go viral in the aftermath for any sort of on-the-field glory, he did begin trending online over his girlfriend.
Kiffin’s girlfriend, Sally Rychlak, is a former Ole Miss cheerleader whose wild photos blew up online not long ago.
Although she isn’t too active on social media as far as posting goes, she does seem to actively ‘Like’ a lot of stuff. Here are just a few of her most recent ‘Likes’ from this weekend:
Big picture, a lot was learned about both Ole Miss and Alabama in in Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday.
First and foremost, the Crimson Tide are actually a lot better than the Rebels and the final score gap should have been wider. Saban’s group found itself in Ole Miss territory pretty consistently throughout the first half, but failed to actually score a touchdown until the second half.
Two, Alabama’s defense is really good. They had the Kiffin’s offense in absolute chokehold outside of seven-play, 75-yard drive early in the outing.

Finally, Kiffin is no Saban. Ole Miss had opportunities to win this one. Alabama literally couldn’t score a touchdown for half the game. But the Rebels simply couldn’t convert. And then when halftime rolled around, Saban made the sort of necessary adjustments that Kiffin is apparently incapable of.
All in all, if this is Saban’s last run against Kiffin, he certainly proved who the superior head coach is.
Kiffin’s girlfriend is undoubtedly proud of him no matter what, but he definitely got his you-know-what handed to him on Saturday.
