Prescott wins National Offensive Player of the Week award

October 27, 2015

Achieving arguably the most impressive single-game statistical output to date in 2015, MSU quarterback Dak Prescott was named as the National Offensive Player of the Week. 

The Louisiana native torched Kentucky en route to a comfortable 42-16 victory last week. In the game, Prescott accounted for six total touchdowns and 465 yards of total offense. 

He completed passes at a 71.4-percent clip, going 25-of-35 for 348 yards and three touchdowns. Prescott also rushed for 117 yards and three touchdowns on only 13 carries. 

The senior quarterback is quietly having a fantastic season, leading the Bulldogs to a 6-2 record. Prescott has thrown for 2,048 yards and 14 touchdowns on the year, and has squarely put Mississippi State in the hunt for a quality bowl game appearance.
