Dak Prescott's TD History; All-SEC Word Comes This Week

How does a Bulldog score 110 touchdowns? Why, one at a time, of course.

With one game left in his career, or rather in his epoch at Mississippi State, quarterback Dak Prescott has accounted for 110 total touchdowns. That’s passing, rushing, even receiving…and if given the chance he likely would have found a way to return a kick for six, too.

This touchdown total is, obviously, far beyond anything any other Bulldog of any era achieved. The better perspective is where Prescott stands in SEC history. That would be fourth, behind Tim Tebow (145), Aaron Murray (137), and Danny Wuerffel (122).

Though Mississippi State took a step-back this regular season, from 10-2 to 8-4, Prescott still could and likely should pull off something not done by a Bulldog since the 1950s. Prescott is the reigning All-SEC first team quarterback from 2014.

If league media and coaches acknowledge him again in 2015, he will be just the third State triggerman to repeat. Jackie Parker did it in 1952 and ’53, and Billy Stacy in 1956 and ’57. Though, both those two were listed simply as ‘back’ instead of what is now called quarterback.

Prescott was also headed to Jackson and the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Tuesday. The 2015 trophy given the top college player in the state will be handed out. Prescott could become State’s first two-time winner after earning it by vote of media and public in ’14.

As for Prescott’s final appearance in a Mississippi State uniform, the Bulldog bowl assignment will come Sunday. Whoever the opponent, Prescott can add a few more touchdowns to his record total as listed here

One at a time.
