"It's exciting. You're part of a start-up, everything is a first", Wolford said of his team's AAF debut.

"I think it's like the best of what a minor league team could be".

The AAF now hopes to do what the XFL couldn't do and that's keep the eyes of America on their league, for not only this season, but years to come as the XFL gets ready to reboot in 2020.

The results from Week 1 featured lots of familiar faces. Ross finished with five catches for 103 yards and two scores. Silvers threw an interception on his first drive. Moore and Harris both entered the National Football League with the Broncos in 2011.

This block by Zion Williamson was off the charts
Of the 40 best scoring defense teams, Duke is the only team ranked in the top 115 for fastest tempo. Barrett and Cam Reddish scorched the nets, hitting 6-of-10 and 5-of-8 shots from deep respectively.

Former Alabama star Trent Richardson tallied a rushing touchdown for Birmingham in the victory. As it was he was second-round pick by the New York Jets in the 2016 draft, but he never took a regular season snap in two seasons. Salt Lake starting quarterback Josh Woodrum found former BYU wide receiver Jordan Leslie for a 2-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds to go until halftime, making it a 19-16 game heading into the break. Along with the Apollos, Rick Neuheisel's Arizona team seems to be the most offensively intriguing team in the AAF, one perhaps worth keeping an eye on.

Hackenberg's stats were pretty brutal, completing 10 of 23 passes for 87 yards and one interception.

AAF Week 2 kicks off next Saturday, February 16th.

New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch initially seemed lukewarm on the Alliance of American Football (AAF), but after a successful opening weekend in which it beat the National Basketball Association on ABC in ratings, he now sees the league as a positive for the NFL.
