That is the question facing coach Lane Kiffin as Max Wittek and Cody Kessler remain even in the team's quarterback competition. Why not play them both in a two-QB system?
The quarterback battle will continue and freshmen are making their presence felt in analysis of USC's depth chart after spring practice.
The battle to be USC's starting quarterback continues despite there being a clear winner between Max Wittek, Cody Kessler and Max Browne in spring practice.
With the spring game Saturday, the USC Trojans will wrap up another spring practice season. Unfortunately, they have as many questions now as when spring started.
Nelson Agholor will be asked to step into the sizable cleats of Robert Woods this fall and produce the same kind of big-time plays. He believes he's up to the challenge.
USC spring practice has been dominated by the quarterback battle, but injuries at key positions have put a damper on what should be an exciting time.
A lively quarterback competition and the return of the dynamic Marqise Lee are just two things to look forward to with the Trojans this year
A depressing performance in a depressing season is leaving USC fans, well, depressed. Unfortunately, the problems that arose in El Paso don't seem to be going away.
Steve Bisheff writes that Lane Kiffin needs to look in the mirror and improve as a coach if he wants to be the long-term answer for the Trojans.
For the first time since last season, the USC Trojans are without the weight of expectations. Rather, all the pressure Saturday is on No. 1 Notre Dame.
Steve Bisheff thinks that USC's best shot at upsetting No. 1 Notre Dame is to let strongarmed redshirt freshman quarterback Max Wittek loose.
Newly minted No. 1 Notre Dame comes to the Coliseum feeling good, while the Trojans are licking their wounds. But USC's offense might be too much for the Irish.
Since Matt Barkley announced that he was returning for his senior season, expectations for USC in 2012 have been through the roof. Now it's time to deliver.
Cody Kessler might not have prototypical size, but the redshirt freshman is hoping his swagger and gamesmanship wins him USC's backup quarterback job.
Victor Blackwell was high school teammates with Matt Barkley at Mater Dei before joining him at USC. With a redshirt year under his belt, he's ready to catch passes from Barkley in a game situation again.
Max Wittek ably followed Matt Barkley's footsteps at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei High School. He hopes to position himself this spring to do it again at USC.
