The BARNSTORMERS Week 10:

Week 12 Match Up:

After a bye last week, the Iowa Barnstormers (2-7) will take on the Utah Blaze (5-4) this Friday at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.  The game is important for both teams as they each try to re-establish themselves as playoff contenders.   It will also be the ‘Stormers first since the resignation of Head Coach John Gregory.  While Utah has seemed to be a back and forth team this season, Iowa will be fighting to break their losing streak for a shot at playoffs.  The Utah Blaze is currently ranked first in the AFL for total offense with 82 touchdowns and an average of 330.4 yards per game.


The BLAZE Last Week:

The Utah Blaze played on their home turf last week against the San Jose SaberCats.  The competition was fairly even throughout the entirety of the game as both teams went into the locker room at halftime tied 35-35.  The third quarter was controlled by the SaberCats, however, the Blaze was able to bounce back in the fourth, taking the game, 76-68.  The performance of the Blaze earned themselves all seven of the postgame accolades, including the MVP of the Game and the Cutters Catch of the Game recognitions.  The win moved Utah to second place in the National Conference, West Division.
