STARKVILLE, Miss. -- In a defensive game, the 110th meeting of the Egg Bowl came down to overtime, with Mississippi State forcing a turnover on the Rebels' possession to win it 17-10 here Thursday night at Davis-Wade Stadium.  

Dak Prescott rushed for a 3-yard touchdown in overtime to lead the Bulldogs past the Rebels.

Prescott didn't enter the game until the fourth quarter because of an injury to his non-throwing shoulder that caused him to miss the past two games. But the sophomore led the Bulldogs (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) to their tying drive in the fourth quarter and the game-winner in overtime.

Ole Miss' overtime drive ended when Bo Wallace fumbled and Mississippi State's Jamerson Love recovered in the end zone.

Mississippi State freshman Damian Williams, the third-string quarterback, made his first career start because of injuries to Prescott and Tyler Russell.

Ole Miss (7-5, 3-5) didn't have an offensive touchdown, scoring only on a 22-yard Andrew Ritter field goal and a blocked punt by Collins Moore recovered by Terrell Grant in the end zone at the end of the first half.
