Fitzgerald Competing for Starting Job Against Jaguars; Tiano Ready to Make his Varsity Dog Debut

One is preparing to start this season. The other is preparing just to start his varsity career. And both Nick Fitzgerald and Nick Tiano are approaching opening weekend with the same attitude. That's why Mississippi State's quarterback competition remains unsettled in August and could stay so for the 2016 season.

Sophomore veteran Fitzgerald, who along with Damian Williams are the contenders for starting stature against South Alabama; and redshirt freshman Tiano met with media Monday. Both are amused at Coach Dan Mullen’s declaration that ‘Nick Williams’ will take Saturday’s first snap.

But both are equally excited about getting 2016 going, and facing something other than the aggressive Bulldog defense.
