7. Bo Jackson, RB, Auburn (1982-85)
Bo Jackson became the face of Nike and the “Bo Knows” campaign as a two-sport star with the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Royals. But before all of that, Jackson was a stud football and baseball player at Auburn. In 1985, Jackson rushed for 1,786 yards and averaged 6.4 yards per rush, which at the time was the best single-season average in SEC history. That showing earned him the Heisman Trophy. Auburn retired his No. 34, and he was ranked No. 8 in ESPN’s top 25 players.
