STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Dak Prescott threw for a career-high 331 yards and a touchdown to help No. 1 Mississippi State beat Arkansas 17-10 on Saturday night.

Mississippi State (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference, No. 1 CFP) trailed until the third quarter and didn't take the lead until Prescott's 69-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Fred Ross made it 17-10 with 13:21 remaining.

Arkansas had two promising drives in the fourth quarter, but neither resulted in points. Will Redmond intercepted a pass in the end zone with 15 seconds left to end the Razorbacks' final chance.

The Razorbacks (4-5, 0-5) have lost 17 straight conference games dating to 2012.

It wasn't the prettiest game for Prescott - who threw two interceptions - but he made clutch throws during crucial moments in the second half. Josh Robinson caught six passes for a career-high 110 yards.
