Las Vegas team named Locomotives


LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The Las Vegas entry in the new United Football League will be called the Locomotives.

UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue announced the name Monday and unveiled team uniforms of silver, blue and white. The name was selected after reviewing more than 30,000 fan entries.

Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel will coach the Locomotives, who will play San Francisco in the league's first game on Oct. 8. That franchise's name will be unveiled Tuesday in San Francisco.

Other UFL teams will play in New York and Orlando, Fla.
