Liberty Bowl at Memorial Stadium
February 11, 2001
4:00 pm (pt) – UPN

The Las Vegas Outlaws embark upon their first road trip ever as they enter the Liberty Bowl in Memphis to face the host Maniax at 4:00 p.m. PT in a game that will be televised live nationally on UPN (Las Vegas cable channel 14/KTUD Channel 25 over-the-air). On the radio, the game will be aired by the Outlaws Radio Network on KBAD 920 AM Las Vegas. Nationally-recognized radio personality JT the Brick will call the action, with former L.A. Raiders and Navy standout Napoleon McCallum serving as the team’s color commentator.

Outlaws Head Coach Jim Criner has emphasized to the team that victories early in the season are worth 1.5 wins down the road, and that wins on the road are considered a double victory. So what does this early season, Western Division matchup on the road at Memphis mean to the Outlaws? “With a 10-game season, this is a crucial game as we return home to face Los Angelesand then stare three consecutive road games in the face from Feb. 25 to March 10.”

LAST WEEK: Both teams enter Week 2 action at the top of the XFL Western Division, with the Outlaws riding the energy of an exuberant home crowd to a complete and impressive 19-0 victory over the NY/NJ Hitmen at Sam Boyd Stadium. Las Vegas held the ball for more than 13 minutes in the opening quarter, scoring nine points on a Paul McCallum 30-yard FG and a Ryan Clement-to-Rickey Brady TD, the first in Las Vegas history. The lead widened to 19 by halftime courtesy of another McCallum FG (31 yards) and a picture-perfect Clement-to-Nakia Jenkins pass from the Hitmen 27-yard line that eluded three NY/NJ defenders and sent the already vociferous crowd into a frenzy.

MANIAX ROLL EARLY, HOLD ON LATE: Memphis utilized three early scores to sprint out to a 19-0 road lead at Birmingham, led by Maniax RB Rashaan Salaam who finished the day with 154 yards on 27 carries, but won 22-20 thanks to a Jeff Hall FG in the third quarter that rendered the Bolts’ final TD meaningless to the final outcome.
