Birmingham Stallions lose, USFL has no more undefeated teams

·1 min read

The last remaining undefeated team in the USFL has lost.

The Birmingham Stallions, who headed into Saturday night’s game a perfect 8-0, lost 17-15 to the previously 1-7 Houston Gamblers.

Birmingham might seem to owe some of its success to home-field advantage, given that every USFL regular-season game is played in Birmingham, but there’s really no reason to think home-field advantage matters in the USFL, where all eight teams live and work in Birmingham all season, and the crowds aren’t large enough for noise to make a difference.

The 8-1 Stallions have already clinched one of the USFL’s four playoff berths. The regular season ends next weekend, followed by two playoff games and then the USFL championship game on July 3 in Canton, Ohio.
