Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker are two of the best to ever play college football. And they were honored during the SEC Championship Game.
The two legends drew a loud applause from both fan bases.

And plenty of media members gushed about the two icons on Twitter.
Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker being honored on the field. Both look like they could probably play right now if need be. I say we let them suit up. Whatcha think?

They just introduced Georgia's Herschel Walker and Auburn's Bo Jackson on the field. Two of the greatest backs of all-time, for sure.

Now neither fan base will admit that one back is better than the other, but still this was a really cool moment to see for all SEC fans. Walker is the SEC’s all-time leading rusher, while Jackson is No. 5 in SEC history. And both players won the Heisman Trophy.
This is the first time Georgia and Auburn have played each other in the SEC Championship Game.
