Mississippi State took the field under the lights at Davis Wade Stadium on Saturday night, as the Bulldogs went through their second full scrimmage of fall camp. Coach Joe Moorhead spoke with the local media following practice to discuss what he and his staff saw on the field, and some potential issues off of it for his team.

-The quarterback competition continues to roll along, but Moorhead told us we might have an announcement later this week. All information that came to us regarding the scrimmage is that the offense was impressive Saturday night, which included both quarterbacks.
-Devonta “Whop” Jason continues to miss practice as he is home in New Orleans tending to a personal situation. No timetable was given for his return, only that the team’s thoughts are with him.
-Moorhead was asked about any potential suspensions, and told us that information would be given out on game week, probably on gameday or the day before.
Mississippi State will take Sunday off, the return to the practice field on Monday. Classes begin in Starkville this week, so the full grind of camp will begin to taper off. The Bulldogs begin the 2019 campaign on Saturday the 31st in New Orleans, taking on the University of Louisiana in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
