Drew Brees can't help but think back to Oct. 2, 1999.
His undefeated Purdue traveled north to face an undefeated Michigan in front of a sold-out Big House crowd. The two quarterbacks: Brees, a junior, and a senior named Tom Brady.
It wasn’t a memorable game for either of them.
Michigan continued running its dual-quarterback system, sending Brady to the bench twice, and Brees hit the bench in the fourth quarter after starting the frame with two drives ending with an interception and a three-and-out. By the game’s end, the Wolverines thumped the Boilermakers, 38-12.
