USC coach Lane Kiffin said he will play two quarterbacks in the Trojans' season opener at Hawaii on Thursday.
Kiffin said Saturday neither Max Wittek nor Cody Kessler distinguished themselves in competing for the starting spot.
Wittek and Kessler are both redshirt sophomores, but Wittek did start the final two games of last season when Matt Barkley was injured. Wittek was 36-of-69 passing for 388 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions.
Kessler has only two passing attempts in his collegiate career.
Kessler separated himself from freshman Max Browne with his running and playmaking ability during spring practice and preseason camp.
Kiffin would like to name a starter as soon as possible. For now, Wittek and Kessler are listed as co-starters.
