Does USC really need to be conservative with first-year quarterbacks Cody Kessler and Max Wittek? Three of the nation’s top seven quarterbacks in passing yards per game are freshmen. One of those is a walk-on!
Look at freshmen numbers:
Jared Goff, true freshman, Cal, 72-115, 935 yards, 4 TDs, 3 Int., 137.2 rating
Christian Hackenberg, true freshman, Penn State, 45-64, 589 yards, 3 TDs, 3 Int, 153.7 rating
