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.
