McIlroy to Retake No. 1 Ranking from Spieth

Winning two majors and being the top-ranked player in the world--which changed to second-ranked on Monday--isn't enough to warrant a shout-out on national television these days.

During Sunday night's prime-time game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, Tiger Woods was shown watching from box seats and was singled out during a break in the action. Standing next to him, but going unnoticed, was Jordan Spieth. The 22-year-old played his college golf at the University of Texas and grew up in the Dallas area. 

Thankfully, the painful snub was evened out by the Texas Longhorns band spelling out Spieth's name during its halftime show the day before.

Spieth was flying under the radar, but he did make his way down onto the field before the game.

Spieth and Tiger weren't the only PGA Tour pros enjoying a weekend of football. Jason Dufner and Colt Knost were at the Cowboys game as well, and Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas traveled to Oklahoma State (where Fowler played college golf) on Saturday.
