Dak Prescott threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a 17-yard touchdown pass to lead Mississippi State past Kentucky, 28-22 on Thursday night.

Prescott completed a career-high 23 of 34 passes and also rushed for 33 yards. Jameon Lewis had a 19-yard touchdown run, caught a 17-yard scoring pass and also threw the 17-yard touchdown to Prescott on a trick play.

Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) beat Kentucky (1-6, 0-4) for a fifth straight season.

Kentucky's Joe Mansour made a 44-yard field goal with 8:15 remaining to pull the Wildcats to 28-22, but the Wildcats could get no closer.

Kentucky's final drive was stopped at Mississippi State's 29 when Maxwell Smith's fourth- down pass fell incomplete.
