Dylan Thompson (Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE)
Clemson, SC (WLTX) - USC backup quarterback Dylan Thompson was named the starter for the Clemson game.
USC Coach Steve Spurrier announced before kickoff that regular starter Connor Shaw wouldn't get the call.
Shaw has been hampered by a foot injury, and practiced very little this week. As he came into Clemson's stadium, he could be seeing wearing a protective boot.
Spurrier said Shaw will dress for the game, and could see playing time.
