Kristin Murphy, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Blaze are back in action at EnergySolutions Arena and will look to cap what evolved into a frustrating and chaotic season with a win over the Cleveland Gladiators.
In the previous meeting in the sixth week of the season, the Blaze (6-11) topped Cleveland (4-13) on the road, 57-40. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday.
The Gladiators are led by quarterback Chris Dieker, who stepped into the starting role midseason. In 12 games he’s thrown for 2,277 yards, 41 touchdowns and only nine interceptions while adding 16 scores with his feet.
Cleveland has the worst defense in the AFL statistically, and is currently allowing 58.8 points per game.
