Favre's NFL future rides on bet with USM baseball team

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Brett Favre visited the Southern Miss baseball team Thursday morning as they prepared for their final Conference USA series of the season against Memphis.

He told the team if they were to make it to the College World Series for a second straight year, he would go back and play another season in the NFL.

"You go back, I'll go back," the future Hall of Famer told the team.

Southern Miss opens its series with Memphis Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at Pete Taylor Park.
