USC head coach Pete Carroll announced after Thursday's practice that sophomore Mark Sanchez would start at quarterback for the Trojans this Saturday when they face the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium.
"We got it real clear in our minds what we are doing; Mark is going to

afternoon that we would go in this direction. I think for all the right reasons.
To give John David (Booty) another week to get well."
