Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott completed 31-of-42 passes for 254 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 38-27 loss to Ole Miss.
Prescott finished with decent numbers--he also rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown--but he didn't truly get things going until Ole Miss had already built themselves a nice little lead. Part of said nice little lead came courtesy of Prescott himself, as he threw a pick-six to Tony Bridges with three minutes and change remaining in the first quarter. That put the Rebs up 21-0. It wasn't until after halftime that Prescott began leading touchdown drives. At that point, it was simply too late. Tough loss aside, the 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior's accounted for 35 total touchdowns in what's been his best overall collegiate campaign. Nov 28 - 11:09 PM

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott's "strong play down the stretch could make him a viable option for a team in search of a developmental prospect at the position," according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

"The Mississippi State standout flashes tremendous potential as a dual-threat playmaker, displaying a splendid combination of athleticism and arm talent in directing the Bulldogs' version of the spread," Brooks writes. The Mississippi State prospect had a video-game-like day in Saturday's 51-50 win over Arkansas. Prescott passed for 508 yards, completing 38-of-50 passes, with five touchdowns and a interception, while rushing for 46 yards and two scores on the ground.

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott was a monster in Saturday's 51-50 win over Arkansas, completing 38-of-50 passes for 508 yards, five touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 46 yards and an additional two scores.

Where to begin, where to begin. Let's skip ahead to the start of the fourth quarter. The Razorbacks held a 42-31 lead entering the period, but Prescott would open the quarter with a three-yard touchdown run--his second scoring run of the contest. He would add touchdown passes No. 4 and No. 5 before the dust settled. The fifth scoring toss, a 14-yarder to Fred Ross with 3:05 remaining in the game, would move the Bulldogs ahead 52-51. Outside of a predictable nothing-performance against the Alabama meat grinder on November 14, Prescott's been phenomenal. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior's accounted for 32 total touchdowns (23 passing, nine rushing).

Mississippi State HC Dan Mullen said that the team would be switching its NCAA-mandated off day from Sunday to Monday.

It's not a huge shift, but HC Mullen's looking to give the team a light Sunday practice before a Monday off-day. Said Mullen, "The trade-off on that is our guys have gotten a lot of reps through the course of the season so they’re going to be OK. It’s just that balance of making sure they’re ready to play the game." Mississippi State was pummeled by Alabama in resounding fashion on Saturday, ultimately falling by a score of 31-6. Senior QB Dak Prescott was sacked nine times in the loss. They'll have to regroup immediately, as they'll be facing a red-hot Arkansas team this coming weekend.

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott completed 22-of-43 passes for 300 yards and an interception in Saturday's 31-6 loss to Alabama.

Prescott attempted a season-high 26 rushes in Saturday's loss, but they netted just 14 yards. That works out to a not-good 0.5 YPC average. This was one of Dak Attack's worst games of the 2015 campaign, but to be fair, it's difficult to succeed when your offensive line is allowing nine sacks. Despite the tough outing, the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Prescott's still thrown for 2,651 yards with an 18/2 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 14 - 7:49 PM

With two more rushing touchdowns, Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott will become the 11th player in major college football history to rush for 40 touchdowns and throw for 40.

Prescott's accounted for 100 total touchdowns in his career. This season, he's thrown 18 of 'em and scored an additional seven via his legs. He's yet to beat Alabama in his time with the Bulldogs, but the 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior's new-found ability to avoid interceptions (he threw 11 last season as compared to just one to this point in the 2015 campaign) should help give him his best chance yet of downing the Crimson Tide when the two teams tango on Saturday. While Prescott's work has been impressive, Alabama's defense ranks first in FBS play in terms of Total QBR allowed in the six games they've played since losing to Ole Miss on September 19.

An NFC area scout said he prefers Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott as a pro prospect to Ohio State's Cardale Jones.

"He's big and he can move," the scout said. "He's just OK as a downfield passer but he takes care of the ball. I would take him before Cardale (Jones) for sure. He might sneak into the second day (of the draft)." Prescott is that rare prospect who came out of nowhere to receive tremendous draft hype in 2014 only to lose ground in the buzz department the next year despite having a better season. Jones receives as much or more ink from the draft community despite succeeding in a limited sample size last year and failing in a bigger one this season. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound Prescott has improved in the pocket, a fact that bodes well for his draft slot.

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott is "a much better quarterback as a senior," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"He is patient in the pocket and doesn't get rattled, showing improved eye use to focus on one side of the field before throwing to the opposite hash. Prescott has a strong arm to delivery with velocity even if he doesn't have a clean platform to step into his throw and his touch has developed considerably," The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior has refined his game as a passer this season, yet still has that added element as dual-threat weapon out of the backfield. Brugler notes that Prescott, while not a "top-50" prospect, still remains as "one of the top-five senior quarterback prospects in the 2016 class."

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

No word yet on whether he's accepted, but Prescott has plenty of time to decide. "Dak is a great CFB player who is more of a 'power thrower' than 'precision passer,'" tweeted Executive Director of the Senior Bowl Phil Savage. "Accuracy is the [question] NFL scouts have on him." Prescott will have plenty of chances to show he's capable of touch on Saturday against Alabama's aggressive defense. Earlier this week, Prescott said: "There’s no better time to go [beat Alabama] than my last year in front of my home crowd."
Nov 11 - 3:44 PM

Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott said, "I’ve beaten every team in the SEC West besides [Alabama]. I want to go do it."

Prescott and his Bulldog buddies host the Crimson Tide on Saturday. The confidence is there, at least, as the 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior said that he believes he's "better at every aspect of the quarterback position" this season. The numbers back Prescott up well enough. In 2014, he tossed 11 interceptions in 396 pass attempts. This time around, he's thrown just one in 300 pass attempts. He's also accounted for 25 total touchdowns. Prescott's final word: "There’s no better time to go [beat Alabama] than my last year in front of my home crowd."

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior's accounted for 25 total touchdowns this season over nine games. 18 of those have come through the air, with an additional seven on the ground.

Miss State senior QB Dak Prescott completed 27 of 40 attempts for 303 yards and four touchdowns in the school's 31-13 win over Missouri.

He added another 47 rushing yards. It was a rain soaked game, but Prescott continued to produce at a high level. He threw an awesome seam route leading to a long touchdown. Prescott will get a chance in the NFL, either as a late round draft pick or undrafted free agent, and expect some teams to evaluate him at a position other than quarterback.
Nov 6 - 8:41 AM

Seventeen NFL teams are attending Thursday's Mississippi State-Missouri game.

Mississippi State offers up QB Dak Prescott, WR De'Runnya Wilson and CB Taveze Calhoun, while scouts will pay particular interest to Missouri'S LB Kentrell Brothers, CB Aarion Penton and DE Charles Harris. "MSU's read-option offense is going to require Brothers, who is quietly having a spectacular season, to be alert and make accurate reads," noted NFL Media "Prescott is one of the best running quarterbacks in the country, and unlike many of them, he has the power to be effective in short-yardage and goal-line situations."
Nov 5 - 8:41 PM's Bucky Brooks compares Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott to Steve McNair.

"There hasn't been a lot of buzz surrounding Prescott's prospects as an NFL quarterback, but more and more NFL scouts are beginning to appreciate his game as a dangerous dual-threat playmaker," he wrote. "The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior has become a more precise pocket passer while exhibiting the the athleticism and mobility to chew up defenses with designed quarterback runs and impromptu scrambles." Prescott has thrown for 2,048 yards and rushed for 371, accounting for 21 total touchdowns through eight games. Perhaps more important is the solitary interception he's thrown; Prescott had seven at this point in 2014.

Kentucky HC Mark Stoops indicated that anybody overlooking Mississippi State senior QB Dak Prescott needs to reevaluate.

"How anybody’s not talking about [Prescott] in the Heisman race," said Stoops, "you gotta have your head examined. Because he is a fantastic football player with a lot of poise and a lot of good weapons." Stoops would know, as he was a first-hand witness to Prescott's six-touchdown immolation of Kentucky on Saturday. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior has accounted for 21 total touchdowns through eight games. 14 through the air and seven on the ground. In addition to the scoring, he's thrown for 2,048 yards and rushed for 371. He's also tossed just one interception during the 2015 campaign, as compared to seven at this point last season.
