With QBs Zack Greenlee in jeopardy of being suspended and Chason Virgil out for the season with injury, former West Virginia QB Ford Childress may be pressed into starting duty for Fresno State this weekend.

Remember him? The only person standing in Childress' way now is Greenlee, recently arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and drinking in public. "We’re not going to make an announcement on anything that’s going to happen, whether he’s playing or not playing, until Saturday," coach Tim DeRuyter said. Childress showed flashes of arm talent in 2013.

Childress' first start of his career will come against Georgia State. "It's his time," Holgorsen said on Thursday night. "It's his job and we're going to see what he can do."
