Katy Perry‘s Prismatic World Tour had an off day on October 4th between stops in Dallas, Texas and Memphis, Tennessee, so the singer decided to visit Oxford, Mississippi where the ESPN College GameDay crew were filming their weekly show on the Ole Miss campus. Perry wore a furry pink-and-black football uniform during her spot as this week’s “Guest Picker” and she didn’t disappoint: In addition to making semi-informed college football predictions, Perry – speaking with a Southern accent that could best be described as “Savannah Molasses” – spent much of her appearance hurling corn dogs, butting heads with ESPN analyst Lee Corso and obsessing over Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight.
When asked who she thought would win the matchup between Number Four-ranked Oklahoma and TCU, Perry said, “I’m picking this one based on looks. Trevor Knight, do you hear me? The quarterback from Oklahoma we don’t mind, so I’m gonna go with him.” Perry then revealed a large heart-shaped prop with Knight’s photo on it and gestured for him to “Call me.”
Perry next predicted an upset when Number 12-ranked Mississippi State takes on Number Six-ranked Texas A&M. “I was gonna pick them based on colors,” Perry joked, but her method worked: Mississippi State walloped the higher-ranked Texas A&M. She also opted for Tennessee over Florida simply because Dolly Parton lives in the Volunteer State.
Both Perry’s manager (Bradford Cobb) and mentor (Glen Ballard) are Ole Miss alumni, so Perry promised them she’d attend the Rebels’ matchup against SEC powerhouse Alabama. Perry then threw some serious shade at rival LSU, referring to them as “L-S-Pew.” Perry also asked “Is this the one that has the Cocks in it?,” a reference to the South Carolina Gamecocks. Perry finally wrapped up her bizarre appearance by throwing corn dogs at the camera and ripping an elephant mask off of Corso’s head.
