Attendance: 26,989, TV: ABC


OAKLAND(AP) - The Tampa Bay Bandits survived a furious Oakland rally for a 17-10 victory over the Invaders..

Jimmy Jordan, who later left the game with a separated shoulder, fired touchdown passes to Eric Truvillion and Danny Buggs to lead the Bandits. Jordan became a starter when John Reeves broke his wrist three weeks ago.

About 10,000 of the 26,989 ticketholders were no-shows for the nationally televised game at Oakland, where the Invaders trailed 17-0 after three quarters. The Oakland rally fell short despite a 3-yard touchdown run by quarterback Fred Besana and a 30-yard field goal by Kevin Shea.
