Collaros to Start at QB for No. 5 Cincinnati

By  | 

CINCINNATI (AP) - Quarterback Zach Collaros will start for fifth-ranked Cincinnati against West Virginia on Friday night, with Tony Pike expected to play as well for the first time since he hurt his non-throwing arm.

Coach Brian Kelly announced Collaros as his starter Tuesday. The
sophomore has started the last three games and kept the Bearcats undefeated. He threw for 480 yards - the second-highest total in school history - during a win over Connecticut on Saturday night.

Pike had to have a plate in his left forearm replaced after it was injured Oct. 15. Kelly said the senior quarterback will get into the game against West Virginia. The Bearcats then have a bye, and Pike is expected to start on Nov. 27 against Illinois.
