This weekend’s USFL games: Top teams in the league battle in Week 4

Two of the USFL’s top teams battle this weekend in a primetime showdown. The Birmingham Stallions (3-0) take on the Tampa Bay Bandits (2-1) at 7 p.m. ET Saturday, May 7 on FOX. 

The key matchup to watch will be the play of Stallions quarterback J'Mar Smith and Bandits QB Jordan Ta'amu.

Birmingham is quickly becoming the team to beat, and they want to keep their winning streak going. Tampa Bay comes into the matchup riding the momentum of an impressive 9-point comeback victory over the Houston Gamblers last week.
