Few could have predicted Mississippi State knocking off Texas A&M. But the Bulldogs shocked many with their 35-28 upset of the Aggies. And Kirk Herbstreit gave Mississippi State some recognition.

The win improved the Bulldogs to 4-5. Mississippi State will have another chance to pull an upset this weekend, as it takes on No. 1 Alabama. The Bulldogs have a chance, as long as quarterback Nick Fitzgerald continues his impressive play.
A week after Fitzgerald tied Dak Prescott’s single-game school record with 5 touchdown passes, he became the third quarterback in the last 20 years to throw for 200 yards and run for 175 in the same game. The other two were Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel.
Fitzgerald and the Bulldogs face Alabama at noon ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN
