|Dan Mullen After Arkansas Game|
“A win is a win, man,” Mississippi State defensive lineman Chris Jones said.
The Bulldogs were not their sharpest showed a quality that most championship teams display when it's not all clicking, showing the will to win and succeeding.
"As coaches, we all know how hard it is to win in this league." Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen said. "That was a huge win for our team tonight against an excellent Arkansas football team. Fortunately we were able to make one more play there at the end of the game. Our guys are finding ways to win, and that’s all that matters.”
"Give a lot of credit to Mississippi State." Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema said. "They’re a very, very good football team and are deserving of their number one ranking."
Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott did exploit Arkansas' secondary torching the Hogs with his first 300 yard passing game of his career. Prescott threw for 331 yards and his only touchdown pass of the game, a 69 yard strike to Fred Ross was the game winner.
“We had to make a play, and the line did a good job and held up." Prescott said. "I just got out of the pocket and Fred Ross got open. That could be a Heisman moment for him but I didn’t do much there.”
"He knows we have great confidence in him." Mullen said. "He expects to make plays. The great thing about him is that he’s going to study the film and learn from it and not make mistakes a second time.”
Mississippi State's win streak has now reached 11 second behind Florida State who has won 24 in a row.
Now mighty Alabama is next for Missisiippi State in Tuscaloosa.
