LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cody Kessler is done sharing Southern California's starting quarterback job. That doesn't mean he's done working to prove he deserves it.
Kessler got all of the first-team work in practice this week after coach Lane Kiffin finally chose him over Max Wittek for the starting job Monday.
Kessler was thrilled to finally ``get the keys to the car,'' but he knows that vehicle needs some work. USC's passing game was pathetic with both quarterbacks in last week's embarrassing 10-7 loss to Washington State.
Kiffin hopes a clear starter will benefit from extra time with his top receivers.
Kessler agrees, and he's grateful not to be trying to win a spot in every practice session.
