It's a new era at Ole Miss football. The Lane Kiffin hype train is off and running as the new Rebels head coach begins the 2020 season on Saturday.

Ole Miss' first opponent of the season is a trendy pick to win the SEC. The Florida Gators can't afford to suffer a season-opening defeat if they hope to keep pace with Alabama for the SEC title. But Kiffin and the Rebels are hoping to pull off the upset.

Former Ole Miss star quarterback Chad Kelly knows what it takes to pull off upsets. He'll be watching Saturday's game closely as the Rebels take on the Gators.

Kelly sent Ole Miss and Kiffin a message ahead of Saturday's game. First off, the former Rebels quarterback loves the baby blue uniforms. He's also hoping for a big day from his younger brother, Casey Kelly, who is a tight end for Ole Miss. Take a look at Kelly's message below.

"These baby blues tho," Kelly said on Twitter. "Super tough !!! Go Rebels !!! Let’s go 81 Casey Kelly,"

Kelly's right, Ole Miss' baby blue uniforms are one of the best we've seen so far in college football this season. Hopefully that uniform swag can help the Rebels keep up with the Gators on Saturday.

The SEC's 2020 season is off and running. We'll learn quickly which teams are true national championship contenders.
