When you topple the #12 team in the nation by 30 points, you get a lot of credit. And Nick Fitzgerald is getting well deserved attention. The redshirt junior signal caller had 266 total yards and four touchdowns against the LSU Tigers on Saturday. And he’s now the SEC Offensive Player of The Week.

Expect the hype around Fitzgerald to continue to build. Especially if the quarterback continues to tear some of the most talented defenses in the nation apart, just as he did on Saturday.
