ORLANDO (AP) -- Two touchdown passes by Reggie Collier and three interceptions by the Orlando defense sparked the Renegades to a 17-10 season-ending victory over the Los Angeles Express Friday night in a battle of last-place USFL teams.
Orlando finished with a 5-13 record on the United States Football League's Eastern Division. Los Angeles, which lost its final eight games, was last in the Pacific Division at 3-15.
The Renegades still finished with the best record in the franchise's history.
Los Angeles quarterback Steve Young didn't play in the second half because the Express wanted to give backup quarterback Frank Seurer a chance to play.
The Renegades scores the game-winning touchdown late in the third period following an interception at Jeff George, his second of the night. George picked the ball off at the Orlando 27 and returned it 17 yards before lateraling to Victor Jackson, who scampered another 11 yards before being brought down at the Express 35.
A 2-yard pass to Joey Walters and a roughness penalty put the ball at the 19-yard line. Collier hit Walters again from there for the deciding touchdown.
