Football fans are in for a treat with two days of USFL action with playoff implications this weekend on FOX. The New Orleans Breakers (5-0) square off with the undefeated Birmingham Stallions (7-0) at 3 p.m. ET Saturday.

Quarterback Kyle Sloter and the Breakers top-ranked offense are fighting for a playoff spot. Quarterback J'Mar Smith and the Birmingham Stallions look to extend their seven-game winning streak with a victory.

And the action wraps up at noon ET Sunday on FOX when the Michigan Panthers (1-6) battle the Philadelphia Stars (4-3) in a North division battle.
