There’s not just one thing that makes Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who was virtually unstoppable for the Kentucky defense in last year’s 45-7 State win, so difficult to defend.
“He has experience. He’s physical. He makes plays when he has to. He’s talented with his arm,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said Monday. “As always, when you play a team like this that’s not only physical at running the ball but they have a physical quarterback and they use quarterback runs, that makes you play with numbers, and then he’s talented enough and their receiving corp and tight ends are talented enough to hurt you throwing the ball. So, it puts a lot of pressure on you.”
