For Oklahoma fans not familiar with Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin, let this be an apt introduction.
Kiffin, a noted Twitter troll and former Alabama assistant, gave major credit to his team’s Week 1 opponent, Oklahoma.
Kiffin praised the Sooners for their recent success and added: “You’re getting a better team than Bama” to start the season.

That is some shot at the Crimson Tide.
Oklahoma, of course, finished higher in the College Football Playoff standings heading into the postseason than Alabama. But the Tide won the national title over Georgia.
Kiffin is known for trolling, so maybe don’t take him too seriously. He often just does it from the comfort of his own Twitter account.
Kiffin might not be in such a lighthearted mood, however, after the Sooners face the Owls on Sept. 1.
Oklahoma, which is a heavy Week 1 favorite, and Florida Atlantic will kick off at 11 a.m. CT on FOX.
