University, Oxford Dedicate Chucky Mullins Drive

On Friday afternoon, the University of Mississippi formally renamed Coliseum Drive Chucky Mullins Drive, going all the way down to the Highway 6.
Mullins was paralyzed against the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Homecoming game in 1989 when he hit Vanderbilt fullback Brad Gaines.
The dedication of the name change took place in front of the Law School with alumni, fans and former players in attendance, including Gaines.
