Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen previously said he didn’t have a clear choice of who would be his team’s starting quarterback this season, so for the season opener against South Alabama, he planned to use two quarterbacks.
After the first half of action against South Alabama, however, it looks like Mullen’s decision has been made easier.
Sophomore Nick Fitzgerald started the game, but it was junior Damian Williams who controlled the offense in the first 30 minutes, going 10-for-11 for 80 yards, including a touchdown pass, and 20 yards rushing, including this short gain shown here:
