Gus Malzahn Compares Dak Prescott To Cam Newton: "He's Got Some Similarities"

Dak Prescott is having a fantastic start to the 2014 season for Mississippi State, and has more than justified the preseason hype that surrounded him this summer. Through five games, Prescott has 1,232 passing yards at a great 10.1 yards per attempt and a 13-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio, as well as 455 yards and six rushing touchdowns. Prescott is a load to bring down, at 6-foot-2, 235 pounds, and is garnering some serious Heisman hype. Who does that all remind Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn of?

Auburn and Mississippi State face off at 3:30 p.m. this Saturday.
