On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Ole Miss football team hosts Austin Peay in their first home game of the 2021 season.
Lane Kiffin, the head coach of the Ole Miss football team, is hoping for a large attendance at Vaught Hemingway Stadium.
Kiffin created a video to encourage supporters to attend the game on Saturday.
Kiffin stated when he tweeted the video, “All @OleMissFB fans must be present on Saturday. Come back, @katyperry, and we’ll pay for corn dogs.”
Katy Perry was the celebrity guest picker on ESPN “College GameDay” on Oct. 4, 2014 when the show came to Oxford, Mississippi. She held up corn dogs several times during her appearance.
Ole Miss defeated Alabama, 23-17, on Oct. 4, 2014. That was the first time Perry, a 13-time Grammy nominee, attended a college football game, according to Grantland.
In the video Kiffin tweeted Wednesday, he said, “Hey Rebel nation, what a great Monday night. The Rebs are 1-0. But now, it’s time to come home to the Vaught. We need the thing full and rocking. So don’t sit around and say, ‘I’m gonna wait until the SEC games.’ We need you there Saturday night. We’re looking forward to the Walk of Champions — our first together. So come out and support us so our players feel it in the stadium as they run out there, but also so recruits see a big-time college atmosphere, which is what we want and what we need. Hotty Toddy.”
Ole Miss defeated Louisville, 43-24, in Monday’s season opener. Austin Peay opened with a 30-20 win against Chattanooga on Sept. 2.
Scotty Walden is Austin Peay’s head football coach.
