The Arena Football League will wrap up its 2015 season this weekend.
The AFL’s 2015 season comes to a close this weekend as the Jacksonville Sharks take on the San Jose Sabercats in Arena Bowl XXVIII. ESPN will have full coverage of the annual AFL title game. It will air this Saturday, August 29th at 7pm on ESPN.
San Jose dominated the AFL this season, finishing the season with a record of 17-1-0 while Sharks had a harder road to run. The Sharks finished the season second in the American Conference’s South Division with a record of 10-8-0. That was also good enough to put the Sharks in third overall in the American conference behind the Philadelphia Soul (15-3-0) and the Orlando Predators (12-6-0). Its rough road aside, Jacksonville still looks to be a valid challenger to the Sabercats. QB Tommy Grady finished the season third in passing in the league, throwing for 4,660 yards and going 402 of 597 passes with only 11 INTs. Derrick Ross led the league in rushing, compiling a total of 586 yards and 33 TDs while San Jose’s Erik Meyer finished a distant ninth just ahead of Orlando’s Bran Thompkins with 142 yards and 6 TDs. Jacksonville also led the league in receiving (Anothony Jones–2,087 yards, 38 TDs) and Sacks (Joe Sykes–18.5 sacks, 117 yards). the Sabercats on the other hand far outperformed the Sharks in tackles, INTs, and kicking on both sides of the ball. So this weekend’s AFL title game is apt to be an evenly matched game.
Coverage of this weekend’s season-ending title game is scheduled to begin at 7pm ET on ESPN. More information on the AFL and ESPN’s coverage of the AFL is available online now at:
