Ryan Gosling grew up in Canada and now lives in California. So, why was the famous actor seen wearing a Central New York high school football jacket?

The 'Barbie' star graduated from a High School in Burlington, Ontario, and did once call New York City home. However, he never lived in the Syracuse area.

Gosling even portrayed a football player in 'Remember the Titans.' But that's just a movie. So, what's the connection?

Mark Avery, the man styling Gosling for SNL shone some light on the question. He bought the jacket at a vintage shop for Gosling to wear.

Guess we'll have to tune in Saturday night to see if he's wearing it in the show too.
