As the UFL enters its final weeks, the Birmingham Stallions continue to assert themselves as the most dominant team in the league. Standing at an undefeated 7-0 two games ahead of both the USFL conference's Michigan Panthers and the XFL conference's St. Louis Battlehawks (5-2) and San Antonio Brahmas (5-2) there are still a number of playoff clinching opportunties for both of the XFL team entering Week 8. Action begins Saturday with the Memphis Showboats taking on the Michigan Panthers at 4 p.m. ET from Ford Field, followed by the Houston Roughnecks facing the Birmingham Stallions at Protective Stadium. Sunday's games include the D.C. Defenders against the St. Louis Battlehawks and the final game of the week features the Arlington Renegades against the San Antonio Brahmas.
