Five former CU Buffs to play in the UFL’s inaugural season

Five former Colorado Buffaloes players will be playing in the inaugural season of the United Football League (UFL) this spring.

Although the UFL is new, the teams that comprise the league are not. In late December, the USFL and XFL announced plans to merge into the UFL, which will consist of eight teams and two conferences.

The USFL Conference features the Birmingham Stallions, Houston Roughnecks, Memphis Showboats and Michigan Panthers, while the XFL Conference will have the Arlington Renegades, D.C. Defenders, San Antonio Brahmas and St. Louis Battlehawks.

The 2024 UFL season will kick off on March 30.

Below are the five former Buffs who are listed on UFL rosters this spring:
