April 11, 2011 |  3:37 pm

Lj1xhxnc USC quarterback Matt Barkley was outfitted with a camera on his helmet during the Trojans' practice and scrimmage at the Coliseum last weekend.

The intent by was to give fans a point-of-view experience as Barkley commanded the huddle and ran plays.

The result can be seen here.

Barkley is the second USC player to wear a camera during practice. Receiver Robert Woods had one on his chest during a workout.

The Woods experiment was interesting, but Barkley's helmet-cam captured images that were easier to view and had video-game qualities.


Coliseum will feature 6,000-square-foot video board
