The XFL is once again coming to a TV near you, and the launch of the new league means fans will not be without football once the Super Bowl ends. The XFL schedule starts on Saturday, February 8 which is the weekend after the NFL season concludes. The move was strategically scheduled to give fans who are craving more football another option when the NFL season ends.
There are a total of four games to kickoff the XFL season featuring eight teams. Here is a rundown kicking off the 2020 season: Dallas Renegades, D.C. Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, St. Louis Battlehawks, Seattle Dragons and Tampa Bay Vipers.

Both offenses will get the ball in overtime meaning a team cannot win the game on an opening field goal. There are no extra points after touchdowns in the XFL. Instead, teams can earn as many as three points with either a two-yard run (one point), five-yard run (two points) or a 10-yard run into the endzone (three points).
XFL commissioner Oliver Luck told USA Today that “98 percent” of rules are in line with the current NFL Game. Luck noted there was major thought put into the few changes with both the fans and players in mind.
