LOS ANGELES(AP) - Birmingham's Cliff Stoudt tied a USFL record with five touchdown passes as he led the Birmingham Stallions to a 44-7 victory over the Los Angeles Express in a United States Football League game before a crowd of 4,658. Stoudt, who completed 18 of 23 passes for 280 yards, tied a USFL record which he already shared with four others. Jim Smith was on the receiving end of three of those passes to match a USFL mark held by eight players. In all, Smith caught eight passes for 185 yards.

The game's final outcome was never in doubt, as Birmingham scored 28 unanswered points at the outset.
