Taylor Swift on the sidelines. (Nuccio DiNuzzo / Tribune) By Brian HamiltonSOUTH BEND, Ind. -- For her first trip to a Notre Dame football game, Taylor Swift had one somewhat unthinkable request for a world-famous pop star: She wanted to sit with her brother in the student section.Fearless, indeed.Notre Dame officials thought the better of that, however, and Swift watched from the sideline during the Irish's 23-12 season-opening victory over Purdue. Her younger brother, Austin, is a freshman at the school and she showed up replete with Notre Dame visor and pullover for the day.The visit wasn't an extended one. Swift flew in Saturday morning and, immediately after the game, a car backed into the tunnel and she was whisked into it and out of the stadium. With a win and a Swift sighting, was this, ahem, The Best Day for Irish fans? Probably close.
