The coveted anthem performance at one of college football’s most anticipated season openers will be particularly momentous for Runaway June’s Jennifer Wayne, herself an alumna of USC.

“I could not be more excited about singing the national anthem with my girls at this huge game! It is such an honor to sing for our beautiful country at the iconic Dallas Cowboys Stadium. I’m an avid USC football fan and third generation Trojan! Fight on!!” exclaims Wayne, who is also the granddaughter of former USC footballer-turned-Hollywood-legend John Wayne.
