Sports News Roundup: USC’s injured QB to miss Sun Bowl

Associated Press Matt Barkley’s career at Southern California is over, a shoulder injury bringing a disappointing end to his record-breaking, four-year run as the Trojans’ quarterback. Coach Lane Kiffin announced that the senior quarterback won’t play in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech on Monday because of an injured shoulder. Instead, redshirt freshman Max Wittek will make his second career start. Barkley’s throwing shoulder was injured during USC’s second-to-last game against UCLA and he didn’t play in the season-finale against Notre Dame. Wittek started the game and the Trojans lost to the Fighting Irish to fall to 7-5 on the season. Barkley was a celebrated recruit when he arrived at USC and won the starting job as a freshman in 2009. He went on to rewrite the Pac-12 record book during a USC-record 47 starts over four seasons, becoming the conference leader in touchdown passes, yards passing, completions and total offense.
