Taylor Swift probably isn’t the first name that comes to mind when you think of sports, but in January she might be all the rage at one of America’s biggest football games.

According to “Entertainment Tonight,” the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer could be on tap to entertain the crowd during halftime at the College Football National Championship on Jan. 8, 2018, in Atlanta.

“She will headline a concert in Centennial Olympic Park during halftime of the game,” a source reportedly told ET. “It will be a free concert. ESPN has her booked for the event and has a massive deal to release new music from [her upcoming album] ‘Reputation’ through its college football coverage this season.”

But not so fast. Despite ET’s source, ESPN released a statement to Sports Illustrated saying the report was “inaccurate,” adding “there is nothing more to announce at this time.”

Whether or not Taylor performs for the game, one thing is for sure: She would make the perfect headliner for the festivities. As a celebrity who is endorsed by Coca-Cola, she is currently locked out of performing at the Super Bowl, which partners with Pepsi. So, that makes the College Football National Championship one of the next best things.

The news of Taylor’s potential gig comes after ESPN’s Sept. 2 broadcast of Alabama’s game against Florida State, where the pop music superstar premiered a portion of her new song, “Ready for It.” The song is set to appear on “Reputation,” which is due out Nov. 10.
