Fred Besana passed for 227 yards and a touchdown as the Oakland Invaders capitalized on blunders by the Boston Breakers to clinch the Pacific Division title. Boston, which got 122 yards rushing from halfback Richard Crump, crumbled from its own mistakes in the third period. The Invaders recovered a fumble on their own 48 and moved to the Breakers' 3-yard line with the help of three penalties. Ted Torosian scored from one-yard out on the first play of the fourth quarter, giving Oakland a 17-13 lead. Boston later had a touchdown nullified by a holding penalty and settled for a 24-yard field goal by Tim Mazzetti that closed the gap to 17-16 with 6:01 left to play.
