UFL Schedule Week 5: Complete List of Football Games on Today With TV Channels, Start Times, and More

Who goes head-to-head in the UFL schedule in Week 5? Here's a look at the matchups, including the start times, channels, and more.

Week 5 arrives as the UFL hits the halfway point of its inaugural season. With a similar format to the first three weeks, what does the UFL schedule for Week 5 look like?

While it wasn’t the easiest of tests, the Birmingham Stallions remain the only undefeated team in the UFL after Week 4. Meanwhile, the San Antonio Brahmas bounced back from their first loss and the St. Louis Battlehawks continued to surge.

The league splits the games between Saturday and Sunday again but will air a Saturday doubleheader. Here are all the matchups on the UFL Schedule in Week 5.

What UFL Games Are on Today?

Week 5 sees the UFL return to their standard scheduling format after airing three games on Saturday and a stand-alone matchup on Sunday in Week 4.

The games are evenly split this week, but the UFL will air a Saturday night doubleheader. Week 5 begins as the Brahmas take on the Arlington Renegades alongside the Stallions facing off against the Houston Roughnecks at 7 p.m. ET.

Then, on Sunday, the Battlehawks start the day as they take on the D.C. Defenders at noon ET. Finally, the Memphis Showboats host the Michigan Panthers at 3 p.m. ET.

Here’s a look at the Week 5 UFL schedule.

San Antonio Brahmas at Arlington Renegades

  • Date: Saturday, April 27, 2024
  • Start time: 7 p.m. ET
  • Channel: Fox

Week 5 of the UFL schedule kicks off with a Saturday night doubleheader. The first matchup sees the Brahmas head to Choctaw Stadium to take on Arlington. After losing QB Chase Garbers in Week 3, Quentin Dormady took over under center to help San Antonio recover from their first season loss. He completed 23 of 37 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown.

They face off against a Renegades team desperate for a win. Arlington has started the season winless and needs a turnaround soon to make another championship run. The offense was dreadful, and while the defense only allowed 17 points, it was against Houston, one of the lower-scoring offenses in the UFL.

The Bob Stoops-led Renegades can only get better from here. The loss to Houston pushes Arlington to the bottom of the league as the only winless squad. Things don’t get easier with a matchup against the Brahmas. Dormady did well in his first start and should improve with more snaps and reps. Can San Antonio keep its foot on the pedal?

Birmingham Stallions at Houston Roughnecks

  • Date: Saturday, April 27, 2024
  • Start time: 7 p.m. ET
  • Channel: FOX

The Stallions continue their undefeated run with a trip to Rice Stadium to take on the Roughnecks. Birmingham is undefeated, but they got quite a scare last week against the Defenders. While the Stallions continue to roll through the schedule, the defense took a hit this week as Birmingham legend LB Scooby Wright announced his retirement.

Interestingly, the Roughnecks are the only team that has taken down the Stallions in the last two seasons. Can they add another win and take down both 2023 spring football champions in back-to-back weeks?

St. Louis Battlehawks at DC Defenders

  • Date: Sunday, April 28, 2024
  • Start time: Noon ET
  • Channel: ESPN

Sunday’s UFL action starts in Washington, DC, as the Defenders host the St. Louis Battlehawks in Audi Field. While the Stallions are undefeated, the Battlehawks have rattled off a three-game win streak after losing the season opener. On the other hand, the Defenders enter Week 5 after a heartbreaking last-second loss to the Stallions a week ago.

The Week 5 QB matchup between AJ McCarron and Jordan Ta’amu features some of the better signal-callers in the league. Ta’amu completed 12 of 22 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the sloppy Birmingham weather. Conversely, McCarron completed 35 of his 45 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns.

This game is a huge matchup for both of these teams. The Battlehawks have rocketed to the top of the XFL conference while the Defenders stay afloat. St. Louis’ offense has been far more impressive than the Defenders’ unit this season — that could be the difference.

Michigan Panthers at Memphis Showboats

  • Date: Sunday, April 28, 2024
  • Start time: 3 p.m. ET
  • Channel: FOX

The final matchup of the Week 5 UFL schedule features the Panthers heading to Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium to take on the Showboats on Sunday afternoon. Both teams are trying to bounce back from losses in Week 4. The Panthers dropped a low-scoring affair to the Brahmas while the Showboats were thoroughly outmatched by the Battlehawks 32-17.

The Showboats are having issues on offense. Case Cookus has not looked as good as last season, and he’s not having much time in the backfield to do anything. He’s been sacked 13 times in four games. However, Cookus may be missing against the Panthers, forcing Troy Williams to start under center.

The Panthers will also be looking at a change under center. Michigan placed E.J. Perry on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury last week against San Antonio. Danny Etling took over in the second half, completing 11 of 14 passes for 105 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
