We are in the process of preserving USFL video. More than three-and-a-half decades have passed since the USFL last played football, and video of its games is in more danger every day of being lost or destroyed.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Federals, headed for Miami next season, closed out their stay in the capital Sunday with a 20-17 upset of New Orleans.
Mike Hohensee threw two touchdown passes and Curtis Bledsoe scored on a two-yard run as Washington snapped a five-game losing streak to finish 3-15. Johnny Walton led New Orleans, 8-10, with a pair of scoring tosses, one a 73-yard flea-flicker to Frank Lockett.
A crowd of 6,386 looked on at RFK Stadium while 7,494 ticket buyers stayed away. It was the fifth time this season that the no-shows outnumbered those in attendance at a Federals' home game.
