The Alliance of American Football made its debut on Saturday, and Bercovici was part of one of the league's first highlights - though he was on the wrong end.

Watching the game, it definitely did feel like watching NFL backups play a game of football.

"Well, it is a little unusual when you go out there to get ready for the opening kickoff and there is no opening kickoff", said a smiling Coyle. "We started with nothing and we're going to open it up on Saturday with eight teams playing what I think will be pretty good football".

But Ebersol couldn't help trumpeting that the AAF topics were 11 of the 20 most trending on Twitter following the game and that the league's app was No. 1 on Google Play and No. 2 in the Apple Store.

"I think the fans had a good time", said Spurrier, now 6-0 in his debuts with the six teams he has coached. For the quarterbacks, a four-round draft was held that allowed teams to protect one player from their region or pick from the entire pool. Sunday will now feature two more games worth of action in the new pro football league, and the nightcap of the festivities will feature the Salt Lake Stallions traveling to face the Arizona Hotshots in Western Conference action. The touchdown in AAF history was a handsome 26-yard dart into traffic from Apollos quarterback Garrett Gilbert to wide receiver Jalin Marshall.

Orlando built a 22-6 lead at halftime and never looked back to win its season opener.

Although Rovell reported that the AAF beat the National Basketball Association in viewership, there are also reports that they ultimately drew the same amount of viewers, with the National Basketball Association game having a higher peak. They have to score a touchdown and go for two.

Steve Spurrier remarked to the media after leading his Orlando Apollos team to victory Saturday night on his unbelievable career success in coaching debut games.

There are 8 teams in the AAF, with rosters consisting of local players.

The Legends will head back to Atlanta to regroup before heading out next week to play the San Diego Fleet on the road. Meanwhile, NBA games in February aren't usually must-see television. The game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.
