The Kiffin Bowl is coming to Los Angeles in 2025.

Southern California and Ole Miss on Monday announced a home-and-home series in 2025 and 2026.

Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin coached the Trojans from 2010 until his firing in September 2013. He also served as an assistant coach at USC under Pete Carroll from 2001-06.

"USC will always be a special place to my family and me, and we were excited to finalize this series," Kiffin said in a statement. "This will showcase two of college football's greatest gamedays, and we look forward to this meeting down the road."

The first meeting scheduled for Aug. 30, 2025 will be just the third-ever regular-season game for the Rebels in the state of California. The rematch on Sept. 19, 2026 in Oxford will be the Trojans' first contest in the state of Mississippi.

Kiffin, 45, was named the head coach at Ole Miss in December after compiling a 27-13 record in three seasons at Florida Atlantic. He went 28-15 at USC before being fired after a 3-2 start in 2013.
