MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Nick Fitzgerald was the first one to ask Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead for this week’s scouting report, and he’ll probably be the first one to have his cleats on Saturday.

That’s what happens when you haven’t stepped on the field since last year’s Egg Bowl.

The Heisman Trophy candidate dislocated his right ankle against Ole Miss, forcing him to miss the Bulldogs’ bowl game. Then, Fitzgerald was suspended for this season’s opener against Stephen F. Austin for violating an unspecified team rule, relegating him to running the scout team.
