PRO FOOTBALL—USFL: It was a memorable Memorial Day weekend for many teams: Pacific Division-leading Denver halted a five-game losing streak with a 27-20 win over San Antonio; Oakland won its fifth straight, a 17-14 edging of Oklahoma; Washington, now 2-12, clearly the league's worst team, fell 15-6 to Pittsburgh; and Philadelphia, the Atlantic Division pacesetter, avenged last year's 24-22 championship-game loss to Michigan by pounding the Panthers 31-13. Jacksonville was losing 41-7 to Houston with two minutes remaining in the half when Bulls owner Fred (Bubba) Bullard wandered onto the field to give the officials a piece of his mind and received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, a 15 yarder that helped set up the Gamblers' third field goal of the half. Houston, No. 1 in the Central Division, went on to win 54-7. Elsewhere, New Jersey defeated Pittsburgh 16-14, Memphis beat Tampa Bay 31-21, Los Angeles nipped Arizona 24-17 and Southern Division-leading Birmingham stopped New Orleans 31-14.
