Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott completed 12-of-25 passes for 211 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 47-34 shootout win over UAB.
He added 111 rushing yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. The Blazers actually outgained the Bulldogs 548 to 516, but MSU more or less controlled the game, taking a 20-point lead into the fourth quarter. Prescott has now thrown for four touchdowns in each of his first two games, lending credence to the opinion of those that saw a breakout year coming. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer that Prescott "has a live arm and good field vision." Sep 6 - 6:47 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott "has a live arm and good field vision."

The dual-threat no longer has to share signal-calling duties with pocket passer Tyler Russell, so he'll have an opportunity to iron out his mechanical flaws and break out this year. "Prescott is a work in progress as a passer but has a live arm and good field vision," Rang wrote. "His footwork is inconsistent and he loses accuracy when his feet are not set. When he does step into his throws, however, Prescott can deliver strikes. He's a very dangerous runner, combining aggression, agility and the power to break arm tackles." Prescott, who has collected 14 throwing touchdowns and 17 rushing touchdowns in sporadic playing time over the last few years (seven starts, 23 appearances), is "expected to emerge as one of the SEC's most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in 2014," writes Rang.

Mississippi State redshirt freshman QB Dak Prescott (elbow) is questionable for Saturday's game against No. 1 Alabama.

Prescott suffered the elbow injury in the fourth quarter of the Bulldogs' loss at Texas A&M over the weekend. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said an update on Prescott's availability would be released Wednesday. Senior Tyler Russell will get the call if Prescott can't play.

Mississippi State redshirt freshman QB Dak Prescott completed 23-of-34 passes for 268 passing yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in Thursday's 28-22 victory over Kentucky.

Mississippi State fans took to Twitter to express outrage that Tyler Russell was allowed to attempt even two passes. Prescott added 16 carries for 33 yards. There's a chance that Dan Mullen won't pull Prescott for Russell again this season.

Mississippi State redshirt freshman QB Dak Prescott underwent surgery to repair a ligament injury in his big toe.

Because of the surgery, Prescott could miss spring practice. The redshirt freshman served as a running option last season, but will likely handle backup quarterback duties behind Tyler Russell.
