BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Dak Prescott highlighted a dynamic performance with two touchdown passes and 56-yard scoring run, and Mississippi State held off a wild rally by No. 8 LSU for a 34-29 victory Saturday night that snapped the Bulldogs’ 14-year losing streak in the series.
 
MSU led 34-10 in the fourth quarter, but LSU scored three late touchdowns. That set up a last-second desperation heave by LSU backup quarterback Brandon Harris, which was intercepted by Will Redmond at the goal line.
 
Prescott, a Louisiana native, finished with 268 yards passing and 105 yards rushing while helping the Bulldogs (4-0) not only beat LSU (3-1) for the first time since 1999, but win in Tiger Stadium for the first time since 1991 – about two years before Prescott was born.
 
His touchdown passes went for 74-yards to Jameon Lewis and 9 yards to De’Runnya Wilson. Josh Robinson rushed for 197 yards and a touchdown.
