While wide receiver Nicholas Norris' initial anxiety over starting his first game for Western Kentucky has given way to wanting to build on his breakout debut, coach Bobby Petrino is pondering changing quarterbacks.

The freshman wideout was one of five new starters for the Hilltoppers (1-2) last weekend. He caught seven passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-24 loss at South Alabama. Norris was WKU's first player with multiple TDs in a game since Jake Gaebler in 2009.

Norris might be joined in the starting lineup by another new face. Petrino is considering switching QBs and making other personnel changes in an effort to end the team's two-game losing streak.

Western Kentucky hosts Football Championship Subdivision Morgan State (0-3) in its home opener on Saturday night.
