Week 2 of the USFL season continues as the Birmingham Stallions are set to take on the Houston Gamblers in the nightcap of Saturday’s doubleheader. The Stallions defeated the New Jersey Generals last week 28-24, while the Gamblers topped the Michigan Panthers 17-12. They’ll each look to become the first 2-0 team in the league this season. 

In Saturday’s opener, the Philadelphia Stars came away victorious, topping the Pittsburgh Maulers 30-23. 

Quarterback Bryan Scott had a hand in all four touchdowns for the Stars, throwing for three and running for a fourth. On the other side, Josh Love threw for two touchdowns and two interceptions, the latter of which was a game-sealing pick by Stars defensive back Channing Stribling.

On Friday night, the New Jersey Generals notched their first win of the season, downing the Michigan Panthers 10-6. All 16 points were scored in the first half and both teams missed field goals as they struggled to get things going offensively.
