Matt Barkley Loves In-N-Out, Not Five Guys

After actor Jason Segel launched last week's short-lived but brutal sandwich vs. burrito war (Segel's a staunch sandwich man), USC quarterback (though maybe not for long if he goes pro) Matt Barkley (@mattbarkley) launched a Twitter food fight. Though the junior QB has remained mum about not being selected among this year's Heisman finalists, he wasn't shy about getting into the In-N-Out vs. Five Guys Burgers & Fries debate. First, Barkley asks an innocent question.

Finally, he passes judgment.

We don't have a dog in this fight, but to those who want to get into the middle of the In-N-Out vs. Five Guys burger debate, we say: Fight On.
