Offensively, the Mississippi State Bulldogs couldn't get much going last week.
They corrected that on Saturday.
The Bulldogs kickstarted their offense with backup quarterback Dak Prescott as they rolled to a 51-7 victory over Alcorn State in the home opener at Davis Wade Stadium.
"It's a good win for us," MSU head coach Dan Mullen said. "Wins are obviously hard to come by in every level of football. I thought our guys came out, (and) played hard (Saturday) right from the opening whistle all the way to the end. I'm proud of how our guys played."
Prescott got the start for senior Tyler Russell, who was held out with a concussion that he suffered in week one against Oklahoma State.
Prescott played only in the first half and gave way to true freshman Damian Williams in the second. Prescott finished the game completing 12-of-19 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed the football four times, picking up 20 yards and scoring on the ground once.
