Friday, June 17, 1983. Chicago Blitz (10-5) at Birmingham Stallions (8-7). Attendance: 23,459, TV: ABC.

[NOTE: This 1983 game between the Chicago Blitz vs Birmingham Stallions is missing the last six minutes of the contest, but that audio does not affect the outcome. The Blitz actually scored one last time despite being ahead. The rest of the game is intact.]

A change of uniforms didn't work at all for the Birmingham Stallions -- but a change of scene did for Bobby Scott. Thinking his players would be cooler by wearing white instead of the traditional home red in the rainy, 75-degree weather, Birmingham Coach Rollie Dotsch had them switch uniforms for their game with the Chicago Blitz. The plan backfired, though, when Scott -- acquired from the New Jersey Generals earlier in the season -- was hotter than the weather. Scott completed his first tosses for Chicago and led the Blitz to a 29-14 United States Football League rout of the Stallions.
