Mississippi State 51, NC State 28, Final
It was a dominating effort for the Mississippi State Bulldogs as they beat the North Carolina State Wolfpack 51-28 in quarterback Dak Prescott's final collegiate game. Prescott was phenomenal in this game, throwing for 380 yards and four touchdowns.
It was also NC State quarterback Jacoby Brissett's final college game, but it wasn't a fine farewell for the former Florida transfer. Brissett completed only 12 passes and threw two interceptions, mostly because he was constantly trying to get away from Mississippi State defenders.
Mississippi State jumped out to an early 7-0 lead after a Brissett interception on the game's first drive. The Bulldogs later went ahead 21-0 before NC State scored 14 unanswered points to cut the lead to seven. The Wolfpack made it a 31-21 game in the third quarter, but Mississippi State's offense was just too much.
Head coach Dan Mullen's offense put up 569 total yards and was 9-of-17 on third down.
The win gives Mississippi State consecutive nine-win seasons for the first time in school history, while the loss drops NC State to 7-6 on the season.
