The Big 12 is looking at expansion, and everyone has an opinion about which teams the league should take. On Wednesday, Memphis native Justin Timberlake threw support behind his hometown Tigers. UCF's answer may not be quite as big a name, but he's a huge college football fan.

Comedian Larry the Cable Guy, famous for his role in the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour," is a Nebraska fan, but he also supports the UCF Knights, and would like to see the Big 12 add the Orlando program.

Having former Husker Scott Frost at the helm for the Knights doesn't hurt matters.

When asked about his UCF bonafides, Larry explained that he has done work with the program from his time as a Florida resident.

And of course, no discussion of Big 12 expansion is complete without a nice pot-shot at Texas.
