Reggie Bush’s greatest moments with USC football were jawdropping.
Reggie Bush’s disassociation from USC football didn’t stop us from talking about the electric Heisman winner. But the ending of that disassociation is still a great excuse to reminisce about his greatest moments.
Bush delivered them time after time, his No. 5 jersey becoming synonymous with awe-inspiring feats on the football field.
Let’s remember the 10 best of those mindblowing plays:
Reggie Bush’s No. 10 best play for USC football: The Texas Dive
We start with a bit of bittersweet moment. It’s one that could have been one of the most iconic plays in Trojan history if not for the outcome of the game and the more iconic, and painful, moment from Vince Young that took its place.
Still, Reggie Bush‘s touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the 2016 Rose Bowl against Texas was classic Reggie Bush.
Bush took the handoff out of the I-formation and promptly cut right, bouncing to the outside where there were a handful of Longhorns in pursuit. But the back was simply too fast for them. He blazed down the sideline and had one man to beat to the endzone. At the three-yard line, he took off, stretching out while the defender made a desperate attempt to push him out. It didn’t work, Bush’s outstretched arms got the ball across the pylon.
The score boosted USC’s lead to eight. It’s just unfortunate that score didn’t hold up.
Bush’s ultimately posted a stat line of 82 yards rushing and 95 yards receiving with two touchdowns.
