If you owned a Nintendo ... then you know Bo Jackson was the single GREATEST player in the history of Tecmo Bowl ... but BJ wouldn't know ... 'cause he's NEVER played the game.

Bo just appeared on SportsCenter to discuss his Bo Bikes Bama charity event ... when anchor Robert Flores brought up Jackson's UNSTOPPABLE digital alter-ego from the NES classic.

Side note -- Seriously, Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson was insane ... fast ... couldn't be tackled ... his speed only matched by digital Lawrence Taylor ... just check out the clip below.



Anyway, when asked about the game ... Bo replied, "To be honest with you, I’ve seen a kid play that game once ... I have never played that game."

He continued, "I still have the ‘Tecmo Bowl’ cassette, in a box somewhere in one of my storage places or in the attic. But I’ve never played the game.”

Bo doesn't know ... in fact, Bo has no idea.
