Lewis accounted for 171 yards of offense and three touchdowns in the Bulldogs 62-7 victory over Troy. He threw a 36-yard score to Dak Prescott, caught a 50-yard touchdown from Prescott and rushed for an 8-yard score during the contest.

The junior finished with two catches for 96 yards, two carries for 15 yards and 1 of 1 passing for 36 yards. He also added 21 kickoff return and three punt return yards.

Prescott and Lewis became the first teammates in Southeastern Conference history to both rush, pass and catch a touchdown in a single game.

Lewis is MSU’s leading receiver and already has career highs in with 12 grabs for 248 yards.

The Paul Hornung Award is given annually to the most versatile player in college football. This year’s award will be presented on Jan. 28, 2014 in Louisville, Ky.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
