STARKVILLE, MS – Mississippi State scored 52 unanswered points and racked more than 500 yard of total offense en route to a 62-7 win over Troy on Saturday.

After MSU recovered a fumble on the ensuing drive, the Bulldogs drove 56 yards before settling for a field goal to take a 10-0 lead.

The Trojans responded with a nine-play, 65-yard drive capped by a five-yard touchdown pass from Corey Robinson to Eric Thomas.

The Bulldogs had 551 total yards of offense, including 235 on the ground. Sophomore quarterback Dak Prescott had four total touchdowns. Both he and junior receiver Jameon Lewis each scored three ways -rushing, passing and receiving.

Troy was held to just 186 yards of total offense. Robinson finished 15-for-25 passing for 105 yards. Brandon Burks led Troy in rushing with 43 yards on eight carries.

Troy's seven points were the fewest produced by the Trojans since scoring just six against Florida in 2009. Hampered by penalties throughout the contest, the Trojans were flagged seven times for 80 yards.
