Week 2: Renegades at Battlehawks April 6th 8pm (ET) on ABC

The Battlehawks took care of buisness when the Renegades came to the Dome in 2023 however both teams at the moment have different Quarterbacks. With Luis Perez most likely at the helm for Arlington it may be a bit more difficult for the Battlehawks to put together a win in 2024 against the defending champs.

Week 3: Battlehawks at Brahmas April 14th 3pm (ET) on ABC

St. Louis returns to San Antonio where the memory of their Week 1 last second win is fresh in the minds for fans of both teams. In 2024 both teams are a bit different on the offensive side of the ball, which should set up an equally thrilling game in 2024.

The Battlehawks go into week 4 taking on their 2nd USFL opponent the Memphis Showboats.

Week 5: Battlehawks at Defenders April 28th 12pm (ET) on ESPN

Last season the Battlehawks and Defenders battled in a physical game during their first matchup of the 2023 season. Even though the team is consisting of new players there will be no love lost between both teams as St. Louis went 0-2 (0-3 career) against D.C. in 2023.

Week 6: Roughnecks at Battlehawks May 4th 3pm (ET) on FOX

Last season Roughnecks weren’t able to keep up with the Battlehawks in Houston as St.Louis won 24-15. In 2024 the Roughnecks have taken on a face lift, keeping the Roughnecks brand but with the USFL’s Gamblers personnel. It’s worth noting as well local college player Clint Sigg from Lindenwood University will be playing for Houston which should bring out a lot of support in the local area.

In what could be the battle for supremacy of the XFL conference St. Louis hosts D.C. in the final stretch of the season. As stated earlier D.C. has never lost against St. Louis holding a 3-0 record against the Battlehawks going back to 2020.

The Battlehawks “travel” to Arlington to take on the Renegades in their final road game of 2024. With all UFL teams still being in the Arlington hub, St. Louis will have extra time to prepare and make final adjustments if needed during their final playoff push.

Week 10: Brahmas at Battlehawks June 1st 4pm (ET) on FOX

The Battlehawks end the season with San Antonio whose coaching staff is full of former Roughnecks. San Antonio currently rosters over 90 players and will look like a completely different team from the 2023 3-7 squad. Worth noting Two St. Louis connections for San Antonio making their homecoming. B.J. Wilson (OT) and Marc Lillibridge (DPP) both have ties to St. Louis with Wilson being from the area, and Lillibridge being a former coach at Washington University (St. Louis).

Closing Thoughts:

Last season the Battlehawks went 7-3 missing the playoffs narrowly due to a controversial tie breaker. As the team goes into the 2024 season, St. Louis is primed to challenge D.C. for supremacy in the XFL conference with a reloaded Receiving Corps, and an intimidating front Seven. As stated, the Battlehawks begin play on March 30th at Ford Field against the Michigan Panthers.
