STARKVILLE, Miss. — Dak Prescott rushed for a 3-yard touchdown in overtime to lead Mississippi State past Mississippi 17-10 in the Egg Bowl on Thursday night.

Prescott didn't enter the game until the fourth quarter because of an injury to his non-throwing shoulder that caused him to miss the past two games. But the sophomore led the Bulldogs (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) to their tying drive in the fourth quarter and the game-winner in overtime.

Ole Miss' overtime drive ended when Bo Wallace fumbled and Mississippi State's Jamerson Love recovered in the end zone.

Mississippi State freshman Damian Williams, the third-string quarterback, made his first career start because of injuries to Prescott and Tyler Russell.

The Bulldogs are now bowl eligible for a fourth straight season, the longest streak in school history.

Ole Miss (7-5, 3-5) didn't have an offensive touchdown, scoring only on a field goal and blocked punt in the end zone.
