This Saturday, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the Lafayette Ragin’ Cajun play in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Each team has worked hard this season to make it to this bowl season. One star player for Southern Miss, quarterback Nick Mullens has had an interesting road to the Bowl. Mullens has had a great year leading his team on the field, and even didn’t let his in-game injury hold him back. During a game against Texas-San Antonio, on October 8 he broke his thumb.

Mullens will lead his team on the field with hopefully a big win in the Superdome.
