Mississippi State Bulldogs QB Dak Prescott will return to school for another year of eligibility, according to ESPN’s Joe Schad.
Prescott and the Bulldogs started the season 9-0 and recorded upset wins over the LSU Tigers, Texas A&M Aggies, and Auburn Tigers, which led them to their first No. 1 ranking in the polls in school history and ended the season their first 10-win season since 1999. But the Bulldogs stumbled to the finish with three losses in their final four games and were upset by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the 2014 Orange Bowl.
Prescott finished eighth in the overall Heisman trophy balloting with two first-place votes. He ended the season with 3,449 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns to 11 interceptions with a 61.6 completion percentage. He also had 986 yards rushing and 14 TDs on the ground. He was also named to the 2014 All-SEC team.
