STARKVILLE, MS - Mississippi State (3-3) escaped Saturday night with a close homecoming win over Bowling Green (5-2), defeating the Falcons 21-20.

Penalties and mistakes made it a closer game than the Bulldogs would have liked, but 139 rushing yards and 75 passing by sophomore quarterback Dak Prescott (and two rushing touchdowns) helped the home team to victory.

Sophomore receiver Joe Morrow was the team's leading receiver with four catches for 57 yards, while senior running back LaDarius Perkins was second only to Prescott with 83 yards rushing including one touchdown, a diving score on the opening drive of the evening.

MSU's two other scores came on the ground as well with runs of 75 yards and 10 yards from Prescott. Senior Tyler Russell actually drew the start for MSU at quarterback, completing 12 of 14 passes for 102 yards.

Defensively, the Bulldogs got eight tackles each from Deontae Skinner and Benardrick McKinney.
