Nearly two months into the season and Utah coach Kyle Whittingham is still waiting for one of his starting quarterbacks to stand out.

Until that time, he will keep rotating between Travis Wilson and Kendal Thompson.

Wilson will be the starter when No. 19 Utah (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12) hosts No. 20 USC (5-2, 4-1) on Saturday. But Whittingham wouldn't rule out the possibility that Thompson may see some snaps as well.

Just don't call this a two-quarterback system, though. Whittingham doesn't see it that way even if they each bring something different to the field - Wilson the better arm and Thompson the better runner.

There's no such debate with the Trojans, especially after Cody Kessler threw a school-record seven touchdown passes in a 56-28 win over Colorado.
