Favre to return if Southern
Miss makes CWS
Former Southern Miss football standout Brett
Favre made a deal with the Golden Eagle baseball team: you
return to Omaha, I return to Minnesota.
The NFL quarterback met with head coach Scott
Berry and the team on the morning of May 20, prior to the team’s
final regular-season Conference USA series with Memphis at Pete
Taylor Park. Favre told the team that if it made it to the
College World Series for a second straight season, he would
return to the Minnesota Vikings.
Favre told the team that he followed the Golden
Eagles through their run to Omaha.
Second-place Southern Miss started its run later
that night with a 9-3 victory over Memphis. The Conference USA
Tournament will be held next week in Houston.
