There is a different sort of buzz around Mississippi State this preseason and a big reason for that is junior quarterback Dak Prescott.
The Haughton, La., native wasn't the starter when last season began, but an injury to Tyler Russell thrust Prescott into that role and he proved himself. Prescott led the team with 829 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. He passed for nearly 2,000 yards with 1,940 passing yards and 10 touchdowns. 
Prescott has garnered a good bit of praise and hype with some calling him a "dark horse" Heisman Trophy candidate.
He doesn't care about the hype or the awards, he just wants to win.
"Everyone wants their name in the history books, but it's not something I'm looking for," Prescott said at Tuesday's Southeastern Conference media days. "I don't want to have the most yards in Mississippi State history. I want to be the winningest quarterback in Mississippi State history."
