When fall comes around every year, southern hospitality is something that is thrown out the window across each and every Southeastern Conference campus. Fans of the SEC certainly take pride in making things difficult for opposing players and coaches when they travel into town and that’s something Dak Prescott can speak to from personal experience.

Now that the former Mississippi State standout starts at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, he no longer has to deal with rabid SEC fans. Instead, it’s opposing NFL fans that are out to make life difficult for him on the road each Sunday the Cowboys play outside of AT&T Stadium in Arlington. When it comes to which fans are the most difficult to play in front of, Prescott said SEC fans are tougher than NFL fans.

The Dallas quarterback was asked that question on the latest Barstool Sports “Pardon My Take” podcast.

Here’s Prescott’s response when asked which was more difficult, road games in the NFL or SEC:

“Probably playing a road game in the SEC. The SEC is just a little bit louder, more passionate fans,” Prescott said during his appearance on the podcast. “They’ve kinda embraced that role as being the SEC, being known for the loud stadiums and everything that comes with that.”

He was then asked a follow-up question regarding the toughest place to play in the SEC. While he didn’t give a specific answer, he did suggest Auburn was the toughest place to play — something Alabama and Georgia can attest to following the 2017 season.

“I don’t know, they are all pretty tough,” Prescott responded. “When you are traveling on the road and you are No. 1 going into Alabama or when you are going to play in Death Valley at night, those are some tough games; but I’ll tell you, Auburn has something about it that was always a fun atmosphere. The fans are eye level with you and they can be an incredible game at night as well.”

Based on his response, Auburn, Alabama and LSU rank at the top of the toughest places to play in the SEC for Prescott. There wasn’t much of a chance he was going to credit Ole Miss fans but if he was being completely honest, he probably would have given the crowd in Oxford some respect given the recent history of the Egg Bowl rivalry.
