Dana Holgorsen was so exasperated with his offense after two games, he switched quarterbacks. But he didn't go to the backup.
Holgorsen called upon third-teamer Ford Childress, a redshirt freshman who played relatively well in a 41-7 rout of Georgia State.
Georgia State is no great barometer, but you'd figure Georgia State is close to William & Mary, which largely shut down the Mountaineers in the season opener.
Now West Virginia plays Maryland in Baltimore on Saturday, and the Terrapins are five-point favorites. Maryland is 3-0 but has played no one of substance — Florida International, Old Dominion and Connecticut.
West Virginia at least has played Oklahoma, and played tough, losing 16-7 in Norman. Perhaps Childress is the answer. Let's go with West Virginia in the upset.
