Welcome to the second week of the Alliance of American Football. Isn’t it nice to have some actual football after the Super Bowl? It’s usually a dead zone until the Combine and the Draft, but the AAF seems to have a pretty good product.

There are two games today, the first is already under way and features the Salt Lake Stallions against the Birmingham Iron. Salt Lake today will be led by former Arkansas Razorback product Austin Allen under center. As you might expect, there are plenty of former Utah collegians on the roster, including wideout Kaelin Clay. They also boast former NFL players Matt Asiata and Branden Oliver at running back,

The Birmingham Iron has plenty of guys from the southeast on their team, the most notable being former Raider Trent Richardson, who was a high draft pick but washed out in the NFL. Former 49ers receiver Quinton Patton.

The game is on TNT and will go until about 2 p.m. Pacific, and the second game of the day between Arizona and Memphis will be on at 5 p.m. on the NFL Network.
