STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) With Mississippi State's offense struggling and time slipping away in the Egg Bowl, coach Dan Mullen turned to Dak Prescott and asked him to win the game.
Bum shoulder and all, the sophomore quarterback did just that, running for a 3-yard touchdown in overtime to lead the Bulldogs past rival Mississippi 17-10 on a chilly Thursday night at Davis Wade Stadium.
Prescott didn't enter the game until the fourth quarter because of a nerve injury to his non-throwing arm that caused him to miss the past two games. But the sophomore led the Bulldogs (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) to their tying drive in the fourth quarter and the game-winner in overtime.
