The league's inaugural games kicked off this past weekend, pitting all eight teams against each other.
A four-year player in college, Wolford threw for 3,192 yards and 29 touchdowns to set single-season records in his senior season at Wake Forest.
The big question facing the AAF, of course, is whether fans were curious to tune in as a one-time thing and will now tune the league out, or whether it can grow that fan base.
Steve Spurrier and the Apollos poured it on the Atlanta Legends, scoring 40 points and establishing itself as one of The Alliance's best offenses in the early going.
Mickelson closes out Pebble Beach Pro-Am victory
Mickelson said he could "see just fine" even after sunset, knowing darkness falls quickly on the Monterey Peninsula. Pebble Beach was so soft that balls were plugging in the fairway when they landed.
Hackenberg and the Express will get a shot at redemption next Saturday against the Arizona Hotshots. Former Crimson Tide star Trent Richardson scored two touchdowns as Birmingham pulled away in the second half, in what was an unfortunate debut for the Express.
The score also gave the Hotshots their first lead and they led their opponent, Salt Lake, 8-0 after a quarter in what became a 38-22 win over the Stallions at Sun Devil Stadium.
The AAF will air games on CBS, CBS Sports Network, The NFL Network and various streaming platforms during its 10-week debut season.
