USC facing injuries, questions at quarterback as season opens in Hawaii

No. 24 USC coach Lane Kiffin knows the order in which quarterbacks Max Wittek and Cody Kessler will audition for the Trojans' starting job during the season opener in Hawaii.

But he's not telling.

Kiffin says it's like a movie — you don't want to see the end before going to the theater.

Kiffin told reporters before boarding a plane to Honolulu for Thursday's season opener that they're just going to have to watch.

USC is favored by more than three touchdowns against Hawaii, which received the fewest votes in the Mountain West conference preseason poll and was picked to finish last in its West Division.

USC will play without tailback Silas Redd, who didn't make the trip to Hawaii as he recovers from an injury.
