Olivia Dunne took to Instagram to share moments from her visit to the Superdome. She posted a snapshot of herself and three friends enjoying the game from the stands, along with a captivating video capturing the stadium’s bustling atmosphere just before the game commenced. To that video, she added the words, “First NFL game everrr,” and simultaneously tagged her location.

Olivia Dunne is the most followed college athlete in the US, with over 13 million followers across platforms, according to Elle Magazine. The NCAA abolishing the rule that stated athletes cannot use their name, image, and likeness to earn money before turning professional benefited her tremendously. Despite putting on a show, the home team failed to delight Dunne with a victory.
