 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Southern California center Matt Spanos has a torn right triceps and won't play Saturday night when the top-ranked Trojans open their season against Idaho.
That means that Spanos, a fifth-year senior, will have to wait before making his first career start. He will be replaced by Jeff Byers, who will move to center from left guard. Alatini Malu probably will start at left guard.
Spanos, who was academically ineligible last season, had an impressive camp as the successor to three-year starting center Ryan Kalil. Spanos was injured Tuesday in a collision with nose tackle Sedrick Ellis and Byers.
