Mississippi State quarterback earns pairs of awards for win over LSU
There was once a time when it was hard to imagine life after Dak Prescott for the Mississippi State football program. But now, there’s Nick Fitzgerald and he makes imagining a lot easier.
On Saturday, the junior quarterback led the Bulldogs to a 37-7 win over LSU, their largest victory against the Tigers in the 111 year history of that rivalry.
Today, Fitzgerald was recognized accordingly with the Maxwell Award Player of the Week which is something no MSU player has done since Prescott in 2014.
Fitzgerald was also named the Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week and one of eight Manning Award Stars of the Week in addition to receiving SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors yesterday.
He accounted for 180 yards through the air and another 88 on the ground with a pair of touchdowns in each department.
Head Coach Dan Mullen was also given high praise earlier today as the Bobby Dodd Trophy National Coach of the Week.
