If Houston beats New Orleans, and Memphis beats Birmingham, three teams (New Orleans, Memphis and Houston) will finish 6-4 and 3-3 in division and go to tiebreakers for second playoff spot.


If, at the end of the 10-week regular season, two or more teams in the same division finish with identical won-lost records, the following tiebreakers will be used to determine playoff berths:

If only there was a website on the internet to tell you the schedule so you could follow along.

Maybe by next year there will be one.

The USFL regular season started on April 15th and ended on June 18th! The USFL postseason starts this Saturday and Sunday and ends on July 1st with the USFL Championship Game!

Overall, much better football than the XFL’s 2023. XFL lost a lot of money this year, whereas the USFL was careful again in only spreading to four stadiums… I’d suggest that FOX and NBC did a decent job partnering on broadcasts and schedule — I could find USFL games, XFL games were much harder to pin down as to channel/streamer since they moved stuff around and over to ESPN itself and ABC.
It will be interesting to see how 2024 goes. I’m going to predict that the USFL has the better outlook and as long as FOX Sports is willing, they’ll continue to expand slowly and carefully into additional stadiums — even changing teams again if necessary. If the XFL goes away in 2025, then those cities open up as potential sites… particularly St Louis, San Antonio and DC. If the USFL goes away in 2025, then Birmingham, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Detroit seem good spots to go.
Frankly, the best of both worlds would be a 2025 merger: ditch pointless XFL franchises like the Vegas Vipers and the lukewarm Orlando, and USFL franchises such as New Orleans and their Houston that have never played in those cities.
That would be a decent 12 team league with two divisions, and play 12 weeks, with #1 getting a bye at the end, and 2 v 3 in a division as the wild card to get #1 for the division championship…
EAST: Philadelphia, DC, NJ, Pittsburgh, Detroit, St Louis
WEST: Birmingham, Memphis, San Antonio, Houston, Seattle, Arlington
Plenty of games to divide up among FOX, NBC, and ESPN.
