LOS ANGELES (AP) - When Mitch Mustain left Arkansas for Southern
California nearly four years ago, he imagined a very different
course for his college career.
Thanks to Matt Barkley's high ankle sprain, Mustain might get a
Hollywood ending after all.
The high school superstar who became the Razorbacks' starting
quarterback as a freshman will wrap up his senior season at
bowl-banned USC over the next two weeks with precious little tape
to show NFL scouts.
But after nearly three years as a dutiful backup to Mark Sanchez
and Barkley, Mustain has a chance to go out as the Trojans' starter
- probably for Saturday's marquee game against Notre Dame, and
maybe for the finale against archrival UCLA.
