We haven’t heard a whole lot in regards to how bowl prep is going for Scott Satterfield and the Louisville Cardinals, but it’s safe to say it’s going better than their opponent.
Mississippi State has been forced to make a change at quarterback for the Music City Bowl due to a post practice fight earlier this week.
Grad transfer Tommy Stevens will start at QB for the Bulldogs in place of freshman Garrett Shrader who will miss the game after suffering injuries in a fight with his teammate.
According to Brad Logan of the Clarion-Ledger and Hattiesburg American, Shrader broke his orbital bone during an alleged altercation with linebacker Willie Gay.
Shrader threw for 1,170 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions this season. He also added 587 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, giving the Bulldogs a dual-threat at the QB position.
The freshman may have been the best option, but Stevens has also played well at times for Mississippi State. The Penn State transfer threw for 934 yards, nine touchdowns and five picks during the season while adding 310 yards and three scores on the ground.<
