STARKVILLE -- Quarterback Dak Prescott was disappointed Saturday following the Mississippi State football team's spring game.
His backup, freshman Nick Fitzgerald, was all smiles.
The reason for Prescott's disappointment and Fitzgerald's happiness was simple. The stakes of the game stated that the losing team in the matchup between Prescott's Maroon squad and Fitzgerald's White unit would have to show up at Davis Wade Stadium early this morning and perform cleaning duty.

To prove it wasn't an aberration, Williams got up and did it again.
