The Program: Odds on Who Will Be USC's Starting Quarterback in 2013

Adam KramerNational College Football Lead WriterFebruary 18, 2013

Matt Barkley is off to the NFL, which means the USC Trojans will have a new quarterback in the fall.

We got a glimpse of life without Barkley late in the season when he suffered a shoulder injury and was ruled out of the team’s final games. This, however, was only a temporary, quick-fix plan. The long-term solution will certainly be slightly more intriguing, although Lane Kiffin has options.

Kiffin’s current status—or perhaps lack of—also creates an interesting scenario. He needs to win this season in order to keep the chatter away from the dreaded “hot seat,” and he’ll use any quarterback who can win and win now.

As for who will end up under center in Week 1, we go to the odds board to break down the contenders.
