Redshirt freshman Ford Childress threw for 359 yards and three touchdowns in his college debut, leading West Virginia to a 41-7 win over Georgia State on Saturday. Charles Sims rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown for the Mountaineers (2-1), who got the scoring boost they needed after a poor performance last week in which they scored just seven points in a loss at Oklahoma. A third stringer a week ago, Childress completed 25 of 41 passes. But West Virginia was far from dominant on both sides of the ball against a team in its first year in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Georgia State (0-3) pulled within 17-7 after Travis Evans' 65-yard TD run early in the third quarter before West Virginia scored the final 24 points. Evans finished with 118 yards rushing.
