COLUMBIA, S.C. - Five turnovers plagued Mississippi State (4-4, 1-3 SEC) Saturday afternoon as the Bulldogs fell 34-16 to 14th-ranked South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium.

After a first half that saw the Bulldogs down only a touchdown at halftime (17-10), Carolina capitalized on two MSU miscues in the third quarter and sandwiched another touchdown in between to lead 34-10 after three periods. MSU managed a fourth-quarter score for the final points of the afternoon.

State actually outgained USC in total offense, 385 yards to 307. The Bulldog attack was led by quarterback Dak Prescott, who was 28-of-43 through the air for 235 yards, but he was also hampered by three interceptions. MSU's two TDs on the day came from Prescott rushes. Robert Johnson and Jameon Lewis were Prescott's favorite targets, each hauling in seven receptions.

Defensively, State was paced by Deontae Skinner's five tackles. Three others had four stops, including Preston Smith who added a tackle for loss and QB hurry. Bernardrick McKinney added a quarterback sack.

MSU travels to Texas A&M next Saturday, Nov. 9, kicking off against the Aggie at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS.
