SHOWBOATS TRIVIA

--
For the 1985 season, the Memphis Showboats were aligned with the six other teams east of the Mississippi River in the USFL's Eastern Conference.
--
Each Eastern Conference team played two games against each of the other teams in the conference that season, representing two-thirds of the 18-game regular season schedule.
--
The Showboats went 7-5-0 in conference play, earning their playoff berth on the strength of a 4-2-0 record against Western Conference teams.
