FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead said earlier this season, after Tommy Stevens lost the starting quarterback job to Garrett Shrader, that Stevens would likely still have a big part to play for the Bulldogs at some point.
That point came on Saturday.
With Shrader dealing with what Moorhead termed as “general health issues,” Stevens got the starting nod at Arkansas and led MSU to a lopsided 54-24 win. Moorhead said Stevens’ Saturday success was a testament to Stevens and his ability to continue going about his business the right way after his demotion a few weeks back.
