We’re two weeks into the USFL season and the league has already hit a major milestone.
Earlier today, they announced that they have accumulated 1 millions fans across all of their social media channels.

Clearly, this is great news for the league. These social media accounts aren’t even that old. It was just earlier this year when the league updated their main account to @USFL across the board, and introduced all of the team accounts.
The Our Den Pawdcast has been tracking team social media numbers since the accounts started, and looking at their last update the New Jersey Generals were on the move.
So, uhh, things have changed…
In large part thanks to TikTok and videos going viral. As a result, the bottom feeding Generals are now the SECOND MOST followed team, jumping 6 spots! Breakers also gained big, so those two teams are now pushing the Panthers.#USFL #USFL2022 pic.twitter.com/aKlpooJks7

Leading the pack is the Michigan Panthers, but with how they’ve been playing we could see them falling out of the top spot. The New Orleans Breakers, which were bumped out of the number two spot could rebound if they continue their undefeated streak this weekend against the Birmingham Stallions.
