Chizik, Kiffin set to meet again

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's Gene Chizik and Tennessee's Lane Kiffin are set to meet again.

The two first-year Southeastern Conference head coaches face off in Knoxville when Kiffin's Volunteers host Chizik and the Tigers on Saturday night.

Kiffin was Southern California's offensive coordinator and Chizik was Texas's defensive coordinator when those teams played for the 2005 national championship in the Rose Bowl.

Texas won the game over Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and USC, 41-38.

Kiffin says it's hard to think of it as the greatest college game ever as some believe, since his team lost.

Chizik described that USC offense as one of the best in college football history.
