Mississippi State football

Mississippi State quarterback Tommy Stevens (7) celebrates his second-quarter touchdown run with Garrett Shrader in the Louisiana game.

Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead knows exactly which quarterback he plans to start when the Bulldogs face Tennessee on Saturday.

However he doesn’t seem interested in disclosing that information just yet.

MSU heads to Knoxville for an 11 a.m. kick on Saturday morning and ever since State’s last game eight days ago, one of the most intriguing storylines surrounding the Bulldogs has centered on whether true freshman Garrett Shrader or Tommy Stevens will lead the State offense. It seems like no one other than Moorhead and the Bulldogs will know until Saturday, though Moorhead did disclose it seems possible both Shrader and Stevens will see action.

For more notes from Moorhead's Monday press conference, plus Starkville Daily News sports editor Danny P. Smith's column on the excuses Moorhead could make for the poor play of his Bulldogs at times this season, see Tuesday's edition.
