30-10, at Davis Wade Stadium.
LaDarius Perkins led the Mississippi State ground attack with 69 yards and a
score on 11 carries, while quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Tyler Russell added a
rushing touchdown apiece for the Bulldogs (4-0), who are undefeated through
four weeks for the first time since 1999.
Russell finished 13-of-27 passing for 171 yards and an interception and
Brandon Heavens hauled in three passes for 55 yards to help MSU win its 14th
straight game against a non-conference opponent.

Greg Hollinger hauled in Bennett's lone touchdown score, as the Jaguars (1-3)
dropped their final non-league contest before making their Sun Belt Conference
debut next week at home against Troy.
