This wasn’t exactly how Mississippi State quarterback Tommy Stevens drew things up.
The graduate transfer signal caller, who joined the Bulldogs prior to this season and won the job as the team’s starting signal caller, is continuing to battle a shoulder injury he first suffered on September 7 in the season’s second week. Stevens has now missed about eight quarters of action since going down with his ailment, including all of last weekend’s win over Kentucky.
As frustrating as it’s all been, you won’t find Stevens moping as he tries to fight his way back in time to play this coming weekend at Auburn.
