Monday night won’t be the first time that running backs Reggie Bush and Adrian Peterson have squared off.
Back in the 2005 Orange Bowl, Bush’s USC Trojans crushed Peterson’s Oklahoma Sooners 55-19. In the game, Bush, a sophomore, racked up 149 all-purpose yards, and freshman Peterson piled up 82 yards on 25 carries.
The numbers in Monday night’s matchup between the Saints and Vikings will be different, but the appeal of the matchup will not be.
