LOS ANGELES (AP) - Coach Lane Kiffin is hoping Southern California can score more points by using fewer quarterbacks.
The Trojans (1-1) probably will need more than mere consistency from Cody Kessler on Saturday to knock off Boston College (2-0).
Kessler is expected to play the entire game against the Eagles after sharing time in USC's first two games with Max Wittek. The Trojans' offense was horrific in last week's 10-7 loss to Washington State, and they're hoping a single signal-caller can find a semblance of a rhythm in this discordant unit.
With USC reeling after just two games, the Eagles realize they've got a golden opportunity to knock off a storied program. New coach Steve Addazio has his own challenges in the cross-country trip, most notably finding ways to beat USC's impressive defense.
