Birmingham Stallions headed to UFL Championship game after victory

The Birmingham Stallions are headed to the UFL Championship. They’ll play for a third consecutive title after winning the USFL conference championship game over the weekend against the Michigan Panthers.

The back-to-back USFL champs trailed Michigan 18-3 in the first half but had a spectacular comeback and scored 28 unanswered points to win 31-18.

The Stallions will take on the XFL conference champion San Antonio Brahmas in the first-ever UFL title game next Sunday, June 16 in St. Louis.

The Brahmas defeated the St. Louis Battlehawks by a score of 25-15 in the XFL conference title game that sets up the epic matchup against Birmingham.
