Katy Perry is ‘all aboard the Lane Train’ after being invited back to Ole Miss
Katy Perry is viewed as something of a good luck charm for Ole Miss fans because of her famous appearance on ESPN’s “College GameDay” nearly seven years ago, and Lane Kiffin wants her to bring those good vibes back to Oxford this season.
Kiffin shared a video on Twitter this week urging Ole Miss fans to come out and support the team in Saturday night’s home opener against Austin Peay. He gave Perry a shoutout in his tweet, and the pop icon responded by saying she is “all aboard the Lane Train.” Perry also endorsed Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral for the Heisman Trophy.

Perry was the celebrity guest picker on “College GameDay” when Ole Miss hosted Alabama in 2014. She picked the Rebels to win, which they did with a stunning fourth-quarter comeback to upset the No. 3-ranked Crimson Tide. Perry then partied with Ole Miss fans and students at an Oxford bar after the game.
Ole Miss will travel to Tuscaloosa to face Alabama on Oct. 2, so Perry will have to pick a different game to attend.
