Bret Michaels to fly in Matt Corral's parents for Ole Miss' final home game of 2021
Matt Corral’s parents will be in attendance for the Ole Miss quarterback’s potential final home game on Saturday. And they have rock star Bret Michaels to thank for that.
Michaels, the lead singer of the band Poison, issued a statement on Friday sharing that he has offered Corral’s parents, Peter and Liz, a flight on his plane to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford to ensure they can attend the game. Peter Corral is a former U.S. Marine and both are friends of Michaels.
“I wanted to surprise the Corrals, as they are great family friends,” Michaels said in a press release. “Knowing the chaos of holiday air travel, I wanted to ensure that Liz and Peter could make it to what may be their son’s last home game at Ole Miss. So, I was excited to offer this gesture to two incredible parents who we are honored to call good friends.”

It’s not a surprise that Michaels is helping out a veteran, as he has been known to do similar things for others in the past.
With Corral’s parents in the stands, Ole Miss will play its final home game of 2021 on Saturday night when it takes on Vanderbilt. The Rebels, who have won 2 straight games and 5 of their past 6, will be overwhelming favorites against the Commodores.
Ole Miss and Vanderbilt are set to kick off on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
