That’s exactly what they did. This past week on Thanksgiving night, one of the biggest rivalries in College Football took place. The battle for the Golden Egg. This was the 115th meeting between the two schools.
In order to win, Nick Fitzgerald had to produce.
That’s exactly what he did. Nick rushed the ball for 117 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Bulldogs were sound offensively. On defense, they were even better. They held the No. 5 offensive team in the nation under 200 yards total. Joe Moorhead’s team ended the season winning its last 3 contests after the 35-3 victory over Ole Miss.
Now the Bulldogs await their bowl destination this coming Sunday.
