Former USC quarterback Matt Leinart and former Notre Dame signal caller Brady Quinn got into a Twitter fight on Tuesday, and it wasn’t over which player had the more underwhelming NFL career.
It was about the Oct. 15, 2005 classic between the Trojans and Fighting Irish in South Bend. Ind. Leinart led USC on a late game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. The final touchdown was scored in controversial fashion, though, as Trojans running back Reggie Bush pushed Leinart into the end zone, which many people believed should have drawn a penalty.
No penalty was called and USC won, improving their record to 6-0. The loss essentially ended Notre Dame’s hopes of reaching the BCS title game.
For those who can’t remember the play, enjoy the replay in the video below.
