Most Under Appreciated Players in MSU History

4 of 7

Matt Wyatt

Wyatt will be the first to tell you that he wasn’t the best quarterback to ever play at Mississippi State, but he still holds a special niche in Mississippi State history. After getting off to a rough start his junior season, Wyatt was replaced by Wayne Madkin. Madkin would go on to lead the Bulldogs to the 1998 SEC West.

The next year, the Bulldogs would go 10-2 after a win in the Peach Bowl over Clemson, but Wyatt led the Bulldogs to a few memorable and improbable wins after trailing in the game. None more so than his comeback against the Auburn Tigers in 1999.
