Like many other big-time rivalries across the college football landscape, USC vs. UCLA does not end when players graduate from school. Last night, a UCLA fan Twitter account attempted to troll former Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley, who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. The fan compared 50 Cent’s horrendous first pitch last night to Barkley’s football delivery.

But Barkley was ready for it. He responded with a link to a Youtube video of USC’s 50-0 win over UCLA in 2011. In that game, Barkley threw for 423 yards and six touchdowns.

The two bantered a bit more afterwards, but Barkley landed to biggest blow. Props to him for successfully defending himself.
