Bo Jackson was in attendance for the Auburn-Missouri SEC Championship Game on Saturday, and he looked every bit like the Heisman Trophy winner he once was.
CBS showed the former Auburn running back on the sidelines and he looked as into the game as the coaches and players. He was down on the ground looking like a sprinter ready to burst out of the blocks, and he looked pretty muscular, no surprise.
Jackson, 51, has been following this Auburn team during the season and has been supportive of his Tigers. He tweeted this following Auburn’s Iron Bowl win over Alabama:
I just witnessed the most incredible sporting event I've ever seen in my life. War damn eagle. Only 1 more second.

Auburn was pretty unstoppable on the ground against Missouri, putting up over 500 rushing yards, including 303 for Tre Mason. Bo had some major praise for Mason after the game:
Just Asked Bo Jackson about #auburn RB tre mason; "He's a bad bad man."

If that’s what this group was able to do to Missouri, imagine how many yards Bo could have gashed them for.
He probably wasn’t thinking about that when he had this nervous look on his face before Auburn pulled away for the win.
