Ex-Razorback QB Mitch Mustain may start Saturday for USC

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.
