Quarterback Analysis by Ryan Abraham:

After a rough outing in the scrimmage quarterback Max Wittek bounced back, completing two-thirds of his passes on Saturday with one touchdown and one interception.

Cody Kessler had an effective session, completing 16 of his 26 passes with zero touchdowns and no interceptions.

Head coach Lane Kiffin was no closer to making a decision regarding the starting quarterback following Saturday's practice. It appears both quarterbacks will continue to compete as fall camp continues on.

QB Notes:

  • Wittek's touchdown was a beautiful long ball to Nelson Agholor. It was perfectly thrown and Agholor caught it in stride on his way to the end zone.
  • The interception Wittek threw went to Charles Burks. Burks ended up fumbling the ball during his return and Kiffin had all 22 players run a lap for a double turnover.
  • Wittek was sacked once and Kessler was sacked four times Saturday.
  • Each quarterback had two passes dropped, two of them by Marqise Lee. Lee dropped a sure TD from Wittek.
  • One other drop that actually helped Kessler was a dropped interception by Josh Shaw.
  • In the overall QB-Ratings Kessler leads Wittek by just over 7 points.
