Fast forward a couple of days and the “Tulane Girl” (real name: Ellie Fazio) was back on TikTok to share a bit more with her many new followers.
“Easy find #tulanegirl #cottonbowl,” Fazio captioned this latest video.
“Those eyes are mesmerizing!!” one fan commented on her video.
“You’re absolutely gorgeous and love those eyes” wrote another.
“A star is born,” another fan commented.
“Hi, I don’t stand a chance and live 6 hours from Tulane but, dinner Friday night?” begged another.
Ellie Fazio has also seen her Instagram follower count jump a bit since becoming internet famous thanks to the ESPN cameras.
Normally her TikTok account features makeover and dance videos along with the usual day-to-day stuff.
