This weekend’s USFL games: Elite teams clash in a Week 5 matchup

We’re at the midway point of the USFL season and the action heats up with two games airing on FOX this weekend. At 3 p.m. ET Saturday on FOX, the New Orleans Breakers (3-1) take on the New Jersey Generals (3-1). Both teams are playing well as they try to keep pace with the Birmingham Stallions, the league’s only unbeaten team. 

Breakers quarterback Kyle Sloter will look to have a big game to help lead his squad to a victory over the North Division-leading Generals and their dynamic receiver KaVontae Turpin. 

And the weekend concludes with a battle between the Pittsburgh Maulers (0-4) and Houston Gamblers (1-3) at 4 p.m. ET Sunday on FOX. Pittsburgh is seeking their first win of the season and will try to slow down Houston running back Mark Thompson. The Gamblers know a victory can help them move up in the South Division standings.
