Wolf Pack announce starting quarterback for USC game; Carson Strong back with Nevada

It's not a huge surprise, but Nevada football coach Ken Wilson made it official when he announced that Brendon Lewis will be the starting quarterback when Nevada plays at Southern California on Saturday.

The announcement was widely expected as Lewis had been getting most of the first team reps in practice this month.

Wilson said AJ Bianco will be the backup and Shane Illingworth will be the No. 3 QB.
