Pittsburgh Maulers(2-8) at Los Angeles Express(4-6)(-6.5)
(AP) - Steve Young completed 12 of 24 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown Saturday night as the Los Angeles Express held off a late rally by the Pittsburgh Maulers to take a 20-12 United States Football League victory in Los Angeles.
Young, the former BYU standout who finished second in the 1983 Heisman Trophy balloting to Mike Rozier of Nebraska, overshadowed Rozier in their first pro meeting. Rozier, a running back for the Maulers, gained just 55 yards on 16 carries against the stubborn Los Angeles defense.
The loss, Pittsburgh's fifth in a row, spoiled the pro head coaching debut of the Maulers' Ellis Rainsberger, who was elevated to the post on an interim basis last Monday after Joe Pendry was fired.
