While he may have finished 8th in the 2014 Heisman voting, Dak Prescott was the most important player in Dan Mullen’s offense in 2014.  The same will hold true in 2015.

According to, Dak led the team while passing for 3,449 yards, 27 touchdowns, and a quarterback rating of 151.7.  In addition to that, he rushed for another 986 yards and 14 touchdowns.  Not to look like a slouch, Dak also had two receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown.

Dak Prescott is the best quarterback Dan Mullen has had since he was the offensive coordinator at Florida and had Tim Tebow.  Prescott will have to continue to rise in 2014 for Mississippi State to have a shot at maintaining the momentum the program established in 2014.
