Lane Kiffin – The Texas Tech player spat, possibly using a racial slur

HOUSTON — Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin said a Texas Tech player spit on one of his players and possibly used a racial slur in the TaxAct Texas Bowl on Wednesday night.

After Ole Miss’ Dayton Wade fumbled early in the fourth quarter and Texas Tech recovered, the teams broke into a tussle. There was pushing and shoving between players and Ole Miss wide receiver Jordan Watkins was given a personal foul penalty.

After the game, Ole Miss lost 42-25, Kiffin said the penalty should have been on Texas Tech’s Dmitri Moore, who was the no. 11 for the Red Raiders, instead of Watkins, no. 11 for Ole Miss.

“They announce the 11th, Jordan Watkins, who wasn’t in the fight. It’s their 11th who fought in the 71st. [Ole Miss lineman Jayden Williams]And everybody knew because their own coaches were yelling at the guy,” Kiffin said.

“It was a racial slur, that’s not what we’re talking about. [it’s] About the saliva section. I presented our own 71 to the authorities, right or wrong, did you see him cry? He’s not crying, not because he was spat on, but because something was said.
