The Dak Show

When it comes to running the football, there was some good news and bad news. The good news is the Bulldogs showed they can still run the ball in this game. Mississippi State had 196 yards on 34 carries.

The bad news is the leading rusher was Dak Prescott. And while almost everyone has said a more run oriented Dak Prescott would result in a better offense, the team still only managed 17 points.

Someone has to step up outside of Dak Prescott. The receivers played well outside of an inexplicable De’Runnya Wilson fumble. It’s up to a running back to step up and take control of the ground game. Maybe it will be Dear. Maybe it will be Williams. Maybe it will be Lee. It just needs to happen sooner than later.
