Michigan 17 at Los Angeles 24


1984 Week 13 - Sunday, May 20, 1984
Michigan Panthers(7-5) at Los Angeles Express(5-7)(-1.5)
Attendance: 10,193, TV: ABC

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Steve Young threw two touchdown passes and Tony Zendejas kicked three field goals, including a team-record 46-yarder, to lead the Los Angeles Express to a 24-17 United States Football League win over the Michigan Panthers before 10,193 at the Coliseum Sunday.

The victory improved Los Angeles' record to 6-7 and moved the Express into a second-place tie with the Arizona Wranglers in the Pacific Division, one game behind Denver Gold, 7-6.

Los Angeles got on the scoreboard when Zendejas kicked his club-record field goal with 3:22 left in the first quarter. The 63-yard drive was set up by a David Howard interception of a Bobby Hebert pass at the Los Angeles 3-yard line.

It was one of three first-half interceptions thrown by the Michigan quarterback. Michigan grabbed the lead when running back Ken Lacy scored from one yard out. After the extra point, the Panthers led, 7-3, with 14:05 left in the first half.

Zendejas then kicked his second field goal of the day, a 27-yarder, midway through the second quarter to pull Los Angeles to within one point, 7-6. .
