Barkley to Start
Los Angeles, CA - Freshman Matt Barkley has been named No. 4 Southern California's starting quarterback.
Coach Pete Carroll unexpectedly announced his decision Thursday, several hours before practice and two days before USC's mock game.
Sophomore Aaron Corp was named the Trojans' starter out of spring ball, but Barkley took advantage when Corp missed two weeks of workouts after breaking a small bone below his left knee Aug. 10.
