Saturdays in November are focused on college football for many of us, but golf was front and center in Southeastern Conference country today.

Jason Dufner was honored at halftime of the Georgia-Auburn game for his PGA Championship victory. Dufner, of course, is an Auburn graduate and War Eagle megafan. He and wife Amanda still live in the Auburn area – where they are building a new house accented by oak trees from Oak Hill, the site of his Wanamaker win – and he can often be spotted at Auburn athletic events.

For the run-up to today's game, Dufner was a special guest on ''This Week in SEC Football, '' where he talked about Coach Gus Malzahn, the upcoming Iron Bowl game with Alabama, and plenty more.

In case you missed it, Dufner has visited the Auburn football team a couple of times this year. He even gave a pregame speech before the Texas A&M game, which obviously had the desired effect as the Tigers upset the Aggies that day.

Here's the video of Dufner's appearance on ''This Week in SEC Football:''
