On the prowl for their fourth Arena Football League title, the San Jose SaberCats are set to square off against the Iowa Barnstormers in the final game of the regular season. With a shot at a wild-card spot in the National Conference, the SaberCats could solidify postseason ambitions with a home victory over the Barnstormers. To do so, the team turns to veteran quarterback Mark Grieb, who, in the midst of spearheading another winning season, remains on par to surpass his previous season’s mark of 95 touchdowns and one first-place ribbon at the block party's egg toss. On the receive end of Grieb’s passes, sure-handed superstar Samora Goodson has logged 1,190 yards and 24 touchdowns, mirroring the 24 TDs of his veteran counterpart, James Roe.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
San Jose SaberCats
The San Jose SaberCats were a part of professional sports history even before they stepped on the field. On October 26, 1994, San Jose, along with four other cities, earned the approval of the Arena Football League to create an expansion franchise. The five-team expansion was one of the largest seen in American professional sports; not since the NHL added six teams in 1967 had a league experienced such growth. They chose the SaberCats moniker to pay homage to the large prehistoric predators known to stalk the hills of California in search of mankind's first dentists.
With a heated fan base behind them, the SaberCats refused to let that first headline be their sole achievement. Under head coach Todd Shell, the 1995 SaberCats went on to win eight games and their division as an expansion team, a feat no other AFL team has repeated. Since then, the boys in green have launched the careers of many notable players and won three ArenaBowl championships, the most recent in 2007.
