Oklahoma 24 at Michigan 34


1984 Week 17 - Monday, June 18, 1984
Oklahoma Outlaws(6-10) at Michigan Panthers(8-8)(-11)
Attendance: 15,838

PONTIAC, MI (AP) --The Michigan Panthers are back, at least that's what some of the defending United States Football League champions are saying after they handed the Oklahoma Outlaws their ninth straight loss to qualify for the playoffs.

Bobby Hebert, returning to the lineup after more than a week's absence because of a strained right knee, fired four touchdown passes Monday night to lead Michigan to a 34-24 victory over the Outlaws.

It was only the Panthers' third victory in 11 games, but it raised their record to 9-8, good enough for one of the two Western Conference wild-card playoff berths. Oklahoma, already eliminated from playoff contention, is 6-11.
