Former Buckeyes competing in new-look USFL
Those who can't wait until fall football season can catch a dozen former Ohio college stars playing in the eight-team U.S. Football League.
Heads up, Buckeye fans: The rebooted league includes three players who once donned the Scarlet and Gray.
- Tight end Marcus Baugh (2014-17) of the Michigan Panthers
- Wide receiver Johnnie Dixon (2014-18) of the New Orleans Breakers
- Offensive lineman Matthew Burrell Jr. (2016-17) of the Tampa Bay Bandits.
- Standout running back Mike Weber (2016-18) was released by the New Jersey Generals before the season began.
The intrigue: USFL plays with a unique rule book, including three-point conversions and an overtime shootout, Axios' Jeff Tracy writes.
