Rumours are circulating on Twitter about the relationship between 20-year-old American football player (QB) Trey Lance and “unintentionally famous” Liv Cowherd, daughter of Fox Sports Radio commentator Colin Cowherd. Are Trey Lance and Liv Cowherd dating? Let’s take a look at the rumours.

Who are Trey Lance and Liv Cowherd?

Trey Lance played as a quarterback for North Dakota State American football team. 

Among other things, he set an NCAA record for most passes thrown in a season without an interception. He passed successfully 287 times in 2019.

He stands at 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) and weighs 221 lb (100 kg), and has already racked up some impressive stats for such a young player.

What about Liv Cowherd?

Liv Cowherd is the same age as Trey Lance (20 years old), but has risen unintentionally to internet fame. 

As the daughter for Fox Sports Radio commentator Colin Cowherd, Liv has so far managed any unwarranted attention shrewdly.

For example, when a Twitter user posted a photo of her with the caption, “COLIN COWHERDS DAUGHTER IS FOR THE STREETS”, she reacted by donning a construction worker’s vest (for a Halloween costume) and owning it.

See how it unfolded below.

Liv Cowherd has close to 100K followers on Instagram, despite only posting 41 photos.

Why do people think they are dating?

Questions about whether or not Liv and Trey are dating have been circulating on Twitter for some time.

Their most iterations have even involved invasively asking Liv’s father, Colin Cowherd, as if he is going to be able, and even willing, to answer strangers’ questions about his daughter’s relationship status.

Others have taken a more lighthearted approach, using images to describe how they feel following the supposed news that they are dating.

That said, several Twitter users have opted to tweet Liv Cowherd directly, requesting answers.

Is there any truth to the rumours?

That Liv and Trey might be dating, or even girlfriend and boyfriend, is obviously of little material importance to anyone – they are two 20-year-olds.

However, the significance of it lies in the suggestion that Colin Cowherd put Trey Lance as his QB2 because he’s dating his daughter.

Some have chosen to “treat [that narrative] as an absolute certainty”, despite the fact it is not substantiated, apparently because it is “entertaining”.

According to The Spun, Colin Cowherd believes that Justin Fields and Trey Lance will “battle it out” to be the third pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.
