DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) – Dak Prescott led Mississippi State to new highs as the quarterback from 20013 to 2015. He carried the Bulldogs to a number one overall ranking for the first time in school history, and won two bowl games (Autozone Liberty Bowl in ’13, Belk Bowl in ’15), while losing in the Orange Bowl to Georgia Tech in 2014.
Prescott owns 38 school records and became the highest drafted player to play quarterback (fourth round, pick No. 135) in MSU history, according to WBCI.
Today, the school is honoring him with billboards across the metroplex as he prepares to start at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday against the New York Giants.
Five digital billboards are on display throughout DFW at the following locations:
I-20 East bound
I-30 West bound
Highway 287 North bound
Highway 287 South bound
Highway 174 North bound
The billboard reads “wherever you go, we go with you,” an ode to a thank you video Mississippi State unveiled earlier this year after Prescott thanked the school in a letter written for a Sports Illustrated magazine issue, writes WBCI.
