The Stallions — the league’s only remaining unbeaten team, can clinch a spot in the playoffs with a victory, while the Maulers hope to play spoiler and earn their second victory of the season.
Here are the top plays from Sunday’s game.
After stopping the Maulers on the game’s opening drive, the Stallions got on the board first with a field goal by Brandon Aubrey. The kick was set up by a beautiful 53-yard pass from quarterback J’Mar Smith to wideout Victor Bolden.
The catch made Bolden the first player to compile 1,000 all-purpose yards this season.
The Maulers struck back, though, taking the lead on a 4-yard plunge by Madre London.
The Pittsburgh defense continued to give the Stallions fits, as evidenced by the big sack from Nasir Player. The Maulers added a field goal to their tally a short while later to take a 10-3 lead.
The Stallions’ Aubrey nailed another field goal late in the first half, which left the Maulers with a 10-6 edge at the break.
The Stallions came out fired up in the second half. First, Bo Scarbrough went for a big gain on the ground.
Then, after the Maulers forced fourth down, Birmingham dug into its bag of tricks — Bobby Holly rumbled 52 yards for a touchdown on a fake punt.
Birmingham is doing what it can to remain undefeated, and it came up with a clutch sack courtesy of Willie Yarbary to hold its opponent to a FG.
Aubrey helped capitalize on the pivotal defensive play with a pretty 42-yard field goal to push Birmingham into a 16-13 lead.
