PHOTO: Snoop Dogg is an...Iowa fan?
Move over Ashton Kutcher. Iowa has a new celebrity mascot.
We all know that Snoop Dogg is a diehard USC football fan. He was a big part of the glory years with Pete Carroll, often seen on the sidelines and at practices.
Well, apparently he has a new team he’s supporting this year. And yes, it’s those Iowa Hawkeyes.
When they picked up a B1G West title on Saturday, the rapper/entertainer tweeted out this gem.

According to The Gazette, the photo was from a 2002 show he performed in Cedar Rapids.
For the record, Snoop is a big-time Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Iowa basically has the same uniforms as the Steelers, so this could be a color thing. We know he obviously doesn’t have the same Iowa roots that a celebrity like Tom Arnold does.
Still, it was a nice little nod to the team that’s become one of the hot topics of college football.
