STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) – Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and ran for another to lead No. 4 Mississippi State over Vanderbilt 51-0 on Saturday night.

It was a dominant performance by the Bulldogs (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference, No. 4 CFP), who finished undefeated at Davis Wade Stadium for the first time since 1999.

Prescott threw touchdown passes of 9, 27 and 14 yards and Christian Holmes ripped the ball out of Vanderbilt receiver Latevius Rayford’s hands before returning it 51 yards for a touchdown as the Bulldogs built a 37-0 lead by halftime.

It was the largest halftime lead for Mississippi State against an SEC opponent in program history. The Bulldogs now have 10 wins in the regular season for the first time.

Vanderbilt (3-8, 0-7) had three turnovers in the first half. The Commodores finished with just 228 total yards, including 49 on the ground.
