JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Sophomore Dak Prescott has been impressive in his three-game cameo as Mississippi State's starting quarterback.

So impressive that coach Dan Mullen has some decisions to make.

Previous starter Tyler Russell has been cleared to return after suffering a concussion in Mississippi State's opener against Oklahoma State. Russell had the best passing season in MSU history in 2012, but Prescott's ability to run and throw has been a good fit for the Bulldogs' offense.

Mullen expects Russell to start in when Mississippi State (2-2) plays again on Oct. 5 against No. 6 LSU, but it's likely that Prescott will also have a role with the offense.

Prescott has thrown for 709 yards, three touchdowns and one interception this season. He's also rushed for a team-high 215 yards and five touchdowns.
