‘I love Auburn because of Bo’: ‘SNL’, ’30 Rock’ alum Tracy Morgan says he’s an Auburn fan on ESPN’s ‘First Take’

Tracy Morgan is an Auburn fan. Because of Tre Mason (and Tre Mason’s dad). And because of Bo Jackson.

The comedian was on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday morning. The conversation turned to how whether Johnny Manziel would tank or triumph in the NFL. Morgan was ambivalent. He didn’t see much of Manziel in action. He doesn’t keep up much with college football. There are too many teams… but…

“But if I had to pick (a favorite team),” Morgan told Skip Bayless, “it’d be like Auburn because my boy, the running back, is (Tre) Mason. I grew up with his pops.”

Mason’s pops is DJ Maseo from De La Soul (we interviewed him about being Mason’s pops back in 2011).

But hey, we might still be posting this even without Tre.

“I love Auburn for Bo,” continued. “I go back to Bo Jackson.”
