The Tucson Sugar Skulls are looking to clinch a playoff berth on the road tomorrow against the San Diego Strike Force.

Tucson enters the final three-game stretch of the season needing one win or one Vegas loss to clinch a playoff berth.

The Sugar Skulls are coming off a 54-24 shellacking on the road against the Rattlers at Footprint Center in which backup quarterback Gabriel Cunningham took the place of Daquan Neal late in the third quarter when the game was out of Tucson’s reach.

Tucson kick returner Benjamin Jones looks to carry the momentum from his performance last week at Footprint Center, where he had six returns for 142 yards in his return from the injured reserve list.

The Northern Arizona Wranglers and the Rattlers have already locked in the top two playoff seeds from the Western Conference.

The Tucson Sugar Skulls (7-6) play tomorrow at Pechanga Arena in San Diego against the San Diego Strike Force (3-10). Kickoff is at 6:05 p.m. Tucson time. You can watch the game live on the IFL YouTube channel.
