Named after Mississippi State legend and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, “Dak” will officially take over the harness at halftime of the spring game on April 15. He succeeds “Jak” (Bully XXI), who enters retirement after eight years of service.
“Jak” will return to the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine where he will continue to “live an incredibly happy life” as “Dak” becomes the next face of Mississippi State athletics.
