If Mississippi State is going to spring the upset it will need more plays like that from Fitzgerald. In his last game, Fitzgerald tied Dak Prescott’s school record with five touchdown passes in a game. Against Samford, Fitzgerald threw for over 400 yards and ran for another 100.
The last time Mississippi State hosted Texas A&M, the Bulldogs upset the then unbeaten Aggies back in 2014. The game can be seen on the SEC Network.
