Much has been made of USC's current quarterback predicament, as freshman Max Wittek will make his first career start against Notre Dame. What we appear to be overlooking, however, is that there is a freshman QB on the other side who will be in just as dangerous a situation.
Everett Golson, who completed has completed just 53.6 percent of his passes during road games.
In fact, Golson has been all but impressive in the road games this season. He's averaging just 174.8 yards and 1.0 touchdowns away from home. In games against ranked opponents, he's completing just 47.2 percent of his passes.
Although USC fell from the Top 25, this displays how he has handled the greater levels of competition.
With that being said, the Trojans will have their hands full as Golson is more than capable of taking over a game with his legs. He's run for a touchdown in three of his past four games, with a 346-yard passing performance against Wake Forest.
In other words, Golson can alter the direction of a game with his legs. In turn, it becomes all the more imperative for the nation's fourth-ranked pass rush gets to Golson early and often and rattles him in the pocket.
Morgan Breslin should be able to do just that.
