LSU jumped out to a 21-6 lead, which they took into the fourth quarter. The Tigers had looked dominant all game long at this point, with their defense shutting down the Bulldogs’ running game, and sophomore running back Leonard Fournette going off for three rushing touchdowns.

But while the Mississippi State rushing attack never came alive, senior quarterback Dak Prescott began to look like the player that torched the Tigers for 373 total yards and three touchdowns in 2014.

Prescott would lead the Bulldogs down the field to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to close the gap to two points, and took possession with an opportunity to win the game in the final moments. After several completions down the field, Mississippi State was looking at a 47-yard field goal with eight seconds remaining.

The Bulldogs were called for a delay of game penalty, however, that pushed the kick back to a 52-yard attempt. Place kicker Devon Bell missed wide-right, sending the Tigers home victorious.
