USC head coach Steve Sarkisian named Cody Kessler the Trojans' starting quarterback a few days ago. After a surprisingly strong 2013 season in which he threw for 2,967 yards and 20 touchdowns, Kessler and the Trojans hope to make a push for a Pac-12 championship.

Thiry broke down the latest on the USC QB situation with Adam Lefkoe.
