Matt Leinart won the Heisman and a National Championship at USC in 2004, and appeared as the backup quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals in Superbowl 43, who lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Reggie Bush has become the second player in football's history to have won an NCAA National Championship ring (2004 USC), Heisman Trophy (2005) and a SuperBowl ring (New Orleans Saints 2010).
