The United States Football League kicks off its first season with six games. Created as a rival spring league to the NFL, the USFL draws decent crowds in their first games. All eyes the first week are on the Los Angeles Coliseum, where the New Jersey Generals and Heisman winner Herschel Walker lose their first game to the Los Angeles Express 20-15. The USFL will play an 18-week schedule with the championship in July.
