COVID-19 drastically impacted attendance numbers in college football a season ago, but as the calendar hits the fall of 2021, Lane Kiffin wants to see that trend reversed for his program.
Kiffin shared a video on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon encouraging fans to show up both to the Grove and Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday when the Ole Miss Rebels take on Austin Peay to create a raucous environment for the players and for recruits across the country.
In his tweet, Kiffin harkened back to ESPN's College GameDay and musical artist Katy Perry visiting Ole Miss in 2014 prior to the Rebels' bout with Alabama, resulting in Ole Miss' first win over the Crimson Tide since 2003.
And Perry joined in on the fun, responding to Kiffin's tweet and voicing her support for the Rebels' coach and potential Heisman candidate Matt Corral.

Even if Perry isn't chowing down on hot dogs in Oxford this weekend, maybe this is a sign that you should if you don't already plan on it.
Ole Miss is expected to allow full-capacity crowds in both the Grove and Vaught-Hemingway this season after limiting attendance and closing the famous tailgating site a season ago due to COVID-19.
Ole Miss and Austin Peay are scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT on Saturday on ESPN+.
