The UFL is headed into its penultimate weekend with two games on Saturday and regional coverage on Sunday. The conference playoffs have already been set with the XFL Conference still determining home field, but players are looking to be noticed for NFL free agency and officials are aiming to level up in the coming years.

All times are Eastern.

Saturday, May 18

  • St. Louis Battlehawks at Arlington Renegades, noon ABC ESPN+ — Jason Autrey
  • Birmingham Stallions at San Antonio Brahmas, 3 p.m. ABC ESPN+ — Jeff Heaser

Sunday, May 19

  • D.C. Defenders at Memphis Showboats, 2:30 p.m. Fox — Derek Anderson
  • Michigan Panthers at Houston Roughnecks, 2:30 p.m. Fox — Scott Walker

Regional coverage areas for Sunday’s games are listed after the crews.


Officials are shown with their college conference, the number of years in the NFL’s Mackie Development Program, and the number of seasons working one of the spring pro leagues. Officials that were hired recently by the NFL are indicated with ★, and the pro league column is increased by 1.
