LOS ANGELES (AP) - Quarterbacks Max Wittek and Cody Kessler both will play for No. 24 Southern California in its season opener next week.

Coach Lane Kiffin said Saturday that he couldn't pick a starting quarterback after a full offseason of evaluation.

So both sophomores will get snaps Thursday at Hawaii. Kiffin says the coaches will decide on a starter after they arrive in Honolulu.

Kiffin thinks Wittek and Kessler are even in their competition to succeed Matt Barkley, the Trojans' four-year starter. Wittek started two games last season for USC, while Kessler had a strong training camp this month.

Kiffin says the situation isn't ideal, and he hopes a No. 1 quarterback emerges eventually.

USC's coaches don't have to limit their offensive choices with either quarterback in the game, Kiffin says.
