Lane Kiffin proudly flaunts his admiration for Taylor Swift, confirming his status as a dedicated Swiftie. In the buildup to the Peach Bowl clash between Ole Miss and Penn State, the Rebels’ head coach was queried about his favorite Taylor Swift song. However, Kiffin, overwhelmed by his affection for the artist, found it challenging to pick just one.
“I don’t know. She’s got a lot of great songs. I just think she’s really amazing that she can connect to so many people,” Kiffin shared with reporters during a press conference, showcasing his genuine enthusiasm for Swift’s music.
The revelation of Kiffin’s Swiftie allegiance is likely to garner support from the Taylor Swift fanbase, fondly known as the Swifties, as they cheer for Ole Miss to secure an upset against the Nittany Lions in the Peach Bowl.
Despite the spirited support, Kiffin and his team find themselves entangled in a bit of controversy. Reports suggest that an Ole Miss staffer resorted to creating a burner account, intending to motivate the team by engaging in trash talk. Eventually, the burner account was exposed, revealing the involvement of the Ole Miss staff member.
As is often the case during bowl season, controversies emerge, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the events on and off the field.
