Dak Prescott was among those who lost their minds when Mississippi State upset UConn
It happened. Really. It wasn’t an elaborate April Fools’ Day joke. The Mississippi State Bulldogs upset the UConn Huskies on Friday night, ending the four-time defending national champions’ 111-game winning streak.
And the crowd went wild – both inside American Airlines Center in Dallas and back on campus in Starkville, Mississippi. Here are just a few of the amazing reactions when Morgan William sank the game-winning buzzer-beater in overtime in the women’s national semifinal:
Cowboys Pro Bowl QB Dak Prescott, the Bulldogs’ starting QB from 2012-2015, was among those in attendance:

What a memory and what an upset. Now the Bulldogs have to try to regroup in time for the national championship matchup against South Carolina on Sunday night – in hopes of one more celebration.
