QB Nick Mullens has Brett Favre’s alma mater soaring


Nick Mullens has already surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre in the annals of Southern Miss passing. And he has no plans of slowing down.

Conference USA’s top returning passer makes Southern Miss the league’s team to beat this season.

Mullens led the Golden Eagles to a West Division title and a third appearance in the C-USA Championship game last season. He was C-USA’s Offensive Player of the Year, ranked second in the league in yards (4,476) and touchdown passes (38), both school records, while tying for fourth nationally in TD tosses.
