JACKSONVILLE(AP) - Jacksonville kicker Brian Franco booted a league-tying 5 field goals, including a 51-yarder, to pace the Bulls to a 22-14 victory over the Baltimore Stars, the defending USFL champions. Starting QB Brian Sipe suffered a shoulder separation at the end of the first quarter and will be out from six to 14 weeks. Sipe had hit 5 of 6 passes for 51 yards.

Baltimore moved within eight points with a minute to go as Tim Riordan hit Herbert Harris with a 3-yard scoring toss and connected with Willie Collier for a 2-point conversion. The Stars then recovered an onside kick but could not move the ball.

The game drew 51,045, the largest crowd of the weekend.
