Mississippi State football

Mississippi State head football coach Joe Moorhead gave no clear indication during his Monday weekly press conference who would start at quarterback this week against Alabama between graduate transfer Tommy Stevens or freshman Garrett Shrader.

It’s been a common theme throughout this season for Mississippi State – the Bulldogs have a Saturday game and it’s unclear who will start at quarterback.

Health issues and on-field performances have necessitated shuffling all year at the quarterback position for MSU. Though both of State’s top signal callers – graduate transfer Tommy Stevens and true freshman Garrett Shrader – are finally at or close to full health for this Saturday’s 11 a.m. home game against No. 3 Alabama, MSU head coach Joe Moorhead still shied away from picking a starter at his weekly press conference on Monday.

“We’re listed as an ‘or’ right now (on the depth chart),” Moorhead said of his quarterback situation. “We went through practice (on Sunday) and both (Stevens and Shrader) got reps."
