Michigan quarterback Bobby Hebert passed for one touchdown and ran for another  to lead the Panthers to a 37-21 victory over the Oakland Invaders and into the United States Football League's first championship game. The Panthers, who won the Central Division title with a 12-6 record and have now won 12 of the past 14 games, will play the Philadelphia Stars in Denver's Mile High Stadium for the title. With 25 seconds to play, after Oakland got its final touchdown, thousands of fans swarmed onto the field and tore down both goalposts. Players and coaches from both teams and the officiating crew headed for the safety of the tunnels to the locker rooms and minutes later USFL officials ruled the game was complete at 14:35.
