Jason Dufner gives Auburn football team pep talk

We came across video today of a pep talk Jason Dufner gave to the Auburn University football team shortly after his PGA Championship win in August.
Here's the talk:
Unfortunately, there's no Dufnering in the video, but it was interesting to see Dufner at least crack a smile while he imparted some words of wisdom on the Tigers. As we've come to learn, there's no bigger Auburn fan than the reigning PGA Champion, who attended school there.
Dufner also attended the Auburn game at Texas A&M on Saturday and Twitter user @owensco79 tweeted this picture of the Duf giving a pregame speech in the Tiger lockeroom:

In case you missed it, Dufner's pep talk must have worked. Auburn took down Johnny Manziel's Aggies, 45-41 on the road.
At 6-1 overall, Auburn debuted at No. 11 in the first BCS standings released on Sunday.
