Mississippi State's Nick Fitzgerald and Kylin Hill teamed up to make life miserable for the Kansas State Wildcats Saturday with the read-option.

Hill ran for 211 yards and accounted for three scores, and the No. 18 Bulldogs' swarming defense shut down the Wildcats.
Fitzgerald was just 11 of 27 passing, though, which could be a byproduct of his rust.
"He was a little amped up," Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead said. "He made some good throws. He did some great things by improvisation."
