Jeff Garcia Throws GW Touchdown in UFL Debut

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Jeff Garcia's 12-yard touchdown pass to
fellow NFL veteran Robert Ferguson with 6 seconds left gave the
Omaha Nighthawks their first lead of the game and a 27-26 United
Football League victory over the Hartford Colonials.
The dramatic finish overshadowed Maurice Clarett's quiet return
to football Friday night. Clarett had a short kickoff return and
nearly blocked a punt in his first game since leading Ohio State to
the 2002 national championship.
Omaha came back from a 23-10 deficit after three quarters to win
before a UFL-record crowd of 23,067.
After Ferguson scored, the former Green Bay Packer leapt into
the end zone seats, a la the Lambeau Leap. Jeff Wolfert kicked the
winning extra point.
The five-team UFL is in its second season as a place for aging
veterans and borderline NFL players looking for another chance in
the big time.
