The USFL kicked off its inaugural season with a two-day draft in February and then a supplemental draft in March. All eight teams are filled with star power and depth from Division I college football powerhouses like Georgia and Ohio State and with NFL talent from teams like the Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos.
Familiar football names like 2016 NFL first-rounder Paxton Lynch and Freedom Akinmoladun — a 2015 Big Ten All-Freshman Team selection and New York Jet in 2021 — make up these talented rosters.
All regular-season games will take place in Birmingham, Alabama and postseason games will be played in Canton, Ohio.
The season starts on April 16 and lasts 12 weeks into June, including two weeks for playoffs.
