100 Days of MSU Football - Day 89
In 1989 the Southern Miss Golden Eagles were riding high, led by their star quarterback, some guy named Brett Favre? Favre and the Golden Eagles started off the year in impressive fashion, defeating #6 Florida State 30-26 in Jacksonville, Florida.
USM then returned home as the #18 team the next weekend to face Mississippi State, which would surely be an easier task than the Seminoles, right? Well, the Bulldogs would prove that was easier said than done for Farve & Co., as State marched into Hattiesburg and secured a 26-23 victory. No one knows what became of the young Southern Miss quarterback after that season.*
