Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has been named a Manning Award Quarterback of the Week following his stellar outing against UAB over the weekend.

Prescott became the first signal caller in school history to throw four touchdowns and also rush for over 100-yards in the same game. He is just the third in the Southeastern Conference to accomplish the feat since 1996 joining Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M 2012) and Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt (2003).

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound junior from Haughton, La., completed 12-of-25 passing for 211 yards, four touchdowns and an interception while also carrying 18 times for 111 yards and a score during the Bulldogs 47-34 win over UAB.

For the season, Prescott has completed 58.8-percent of his throws for 495 yards, eight touchdowns and two picks while also adding 134 yards and a score on the ground.

Prescott is tied for the FBS lead in touchdown passes and ranks eighth in the country in quarterback rating.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
