And just why is the pop star singer rooting for Notre Dame? And how did she get to the sideline for yesterday’s Irish win?â†µ
Swift’s younger brother Austin is a ND freshman. The Tribune’s Brian Hamilton picks up the story:â†µ
For her first trip to a Notre Dame football game, Taylor Swift had one somewhat unthinkable request for a world-famous pop star: She wanted to sit with her brother in the student section.â†µ
Notre Dame officials thought the better of that, however, and Swift watched from the sideline during the Irish’s 23-12 season-opening victory over Purdue.â†µ
The visit wasn’t an extended one. Swift flew in Saturday morning and, immediately after the game, a car backed into the tunnel and she was whisked into it and out of the stadium.â†µ
Swift fans, take note. Who knows? You might run into her at future ND games.
