Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald had some nice things to say about the other Bulldogs on Wednesday in Atlanta. The senior quarterback lost to Georgia 31-3 in Sanford Stadium last season, which was the game that made many people believe in the Dawgs.
Fitzgerald has played in many hostile stadiums throughout his SEC career, but when asked which stadium was the loudest he has played in, he gave the nod to his favorite team from his youth, Georgia’s Sanford Stadium.
“The first time going in there to play was a completely different experience,” Fitzgerald told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It was probably the loudest college football stadium I’ve ever played in.”
It was a childhood dream of the Mississipi State quarterback’s, a Richmond Hill High School alum, to play between the hedges – his father went to UGA and his second cousin Charles Pledger (who Fitzgerald considers his uncle) played defensive back for the red and black in the early 90’s.
