Highlights of the Bulls' crushing win over the Feds.


JACKSONVILLE (AP) It was a bad day for the Washington Federals, who lost 13 of their first 14 last season. They started off the same way this year dropping a 53-14 decision to expansion Jacksonville. The 53 points was a league record.

Much-traveled quarterback Matt Robinson threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns, and Larry Mason ran for two scores as the Bulls broke Tampas single-game USFL scoring mark of 45. There was a crowd of 49,392 at the Gator Bowl.

Washington quarterback Mike Hohensee ran for one score, and his backup, Reggie Collier threw 41 yards to Joey Walters for the other.
