The Showboats territorial schools for 1985 included Vanderbilt, Memphis State, Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee, and strangely, UCLA.
While territorial assignments had been a little quirky in prior seasons (such as the Boston Breakers having rights to select players from the University of Nebraska), the Showboats gaining access to UCLA players was unique:  the league had a franchise in Los Angeles, after all.
Among the Showboats 1985 territorial selections were Steve Bono, who would later make a splash in the NFL as a back-up for the 49ers, Duval Love, who would go on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and kicker Fuad Reveiz, who went on to play for the Minnesota Vikings. 
Reveiz' accuracy was considered a question mark by sports bettors, who when posed with a bet on Vikings games pondered whether they should "put a wad on Fuad..."
