CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Dak Prescott closed out his college career in impressive fashion, throwing for a Belk Bowl-record 380 yards and four touchdowns in Mississippi State’s 51-28 victory over North Carolina State on Wednesday.

Selected the game MVP, Prescott completed 25 of 42 passes and ran for 47 yards to become the fourth player in FBS history to throw for 9,000 yards and run for 2,500 yards.

Prescott threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Holloway in the second half to break it open for the Bulldogs (9-4).

Wide receiver Fred Ross had seven catches for 74 yards and a touchdown and scored on a 33-yard reverse. De’Runnya Wilson added five catches for 96 yards and a touchdown to help the Bulldogs break the Belk Bowl scoring record.

North Carolina State’s Jacoby Brissett threw for one score and ran for another, but had two early interceptions that led to Mississippi State’s first 14 points.
