College athletics don't get quite as much celebrity love as pro sports do. But the celebrities who do love college sports, really love their teams. It's especially true in college football. Location typically plays a big part in that.
Here are 15 celebrities who absolutely love their college football teams:
The Rock has good reason to love Miami -- he played college football there. Johnson was part of the Hurricanes National Title team in 1991, and he continues to express his love for 'The U' to this very day.
Upton was born in Michigan and is Wolverines fan all the way. She also dates a certain MLB pitcher who plays for a Michigan team.
Alright, alright, alright. McConaughey is a huge Texas Longhorns fan, as evidenced by his appearances on their sidelines and the show College Gameday.
Vaughn is just a huge sports fan in general. Growing up in Illinois led him to become a fan of the Fighting Irish, as well as the Cubs and Blackhawks.
The 21/22 Jump Street star is all about the Crimson Tide. Although he grew up in Mississippi, he was born in Alabama, which obviously plays a big part in his fandom.
Growing up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, just 30 minutes from Kinnick Stadium, Kutcher was destined to be a fan of the Hawkeyes. Not only does he love Iowa football, he's also a big supporter of the school's basketball and wrestling programs.
The singer/songwriter is a big supporter of the Ohio State Buckeyes. His piano went viral a few years back after a picture hit the internet showing it covered in OSU stickers.
Snoop Dogg is So. Cal all the way when it comes to his sports teams, except for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's also a pretty good athlete, as is his son, who's set to play DI college football next fall. Will he choose USC?
Here we have another big Notre Dame supporter in long-time television personality Regis Philbin. Regis even narrated two audio CDs that accompanied the book, Echoes of Notre Dame Football: Great and Memorable Moments of the Fighting Irish.
Daniel Whitney loves to get 'er done with the Cornhuskers. He was born in Nebraska, raised on a pig farm and then one day attended the University of Nebraska. He ultimately left school to pursue a career in comedy, but there's no doubt he's a true Husker.
Here's another celebrity who hasn't been shy about showing his fandom on national television. Chesney is a born and raised Tennessee Vols fan, who's even recorded Tennessee-themed songs in the past.
The Cougar loves him some Indiana football. Back in 2000 he gave a commencement speech at the University and was even honored with an honorary Doctorate of Musical Arts.
Letterman is a Ball State fan? Yep. Ball State is in Indiana, Letterman's home state, and he graduated from the school in 1969. He still regularly mentions his alma mater on the Late Show.
Even casual college football fans have to know that Will Ferrell is a USC fanatic. Just like most of the other celeb super fans on this list, it's mainly because of where he grew up (So. Cal). There's not a year that goes by where you don't see the actor on the USC sidelines for at least one game.
The biggest celebrity college football fan is none other than Good Ol' JR, Jim Ross. He's an avid Oklahoma Sooners fan, to say the least. He attends each game, has a BBQ stand at home games and it's safe to assume that he's donated some of his hard-earned money to the University over the years.
