Is it wrong to root for a football team just because it has a cute quarterback? Not if you’re Katy Perry and you have a crush on Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight.
Perry appeared on ESPN “College GameDay” on Saturday and let out a cougar roar for Knight, who just happens to be eight years her junior.
Asked to pick between Oklahoma and TCU, the 29-year-old 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 going with him.
“Trevor Knight, call me!”

The celebrity shout-out didn’t help. Oklahoma lost, 37-33.
Knight’s older brother, Tyler, told TMZ later that his little bro was flattered by Perry’s gushing. And Tyler wanted Perry to know that even though Trevor is spoken for, he’s single and available.
