USC looks to Wittek


It’s all but official: the USC Trojans are now Max Wittek’s team. Barring any last-minute mind-changing, the Trojans are expected to announce today that Wittek, and not Matt Barkley, will start at quarterback in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech on New Year’s Eve. The Trojans held their first practice in El Paso on Wednesday, and Barkley didn’t participate. He joined teammates on the field for warmups but wore a jersey top and sweatpants, without helmet or pads. After practice, Coach Lane Kiffin said he would announce his starting quarterback after today’s practice. Asked if he expected to start, Wittek said, “It looks like it.” – The Orange County Register
