LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cody Kessler is still Southern California's starting quarterback after holding off a challenge from Max Browne during the Trojans' spring workouts.
New coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed Kessler's spot Tuesday night after USC's penultimate practice of the spring.
Sarkisian also says the competition will continue in fall camp, however.
Kessler started all 14 games as a sophomore last season, passing for 2,968 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions while playing for three head coaches. He was the MVP of the Trojans' victory over Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl, passing for a career-high 345 yards and four TDs.
Backup Max Wittek left USC after the season, and Sarkisian opened the competition in spring between Kessler and Browne, the nation's top high school quarterback in 2012. Browne redshirted last season.
