The San Diego Surge will host the Kansas City Titans in the American Conference Championship game on Saturday with the winner earning a shot at the WFA National Championship. This will be the first-ever meeting between the two teams.

The Surge are making the third conference championship appearance in their four-year history. In their previous two appearances (2011 & 2012), they advanced to the national title game.

This time they will need to get pass a high powered Kansas City offense led by quarterback Katie Sowers, who led the league in passer rating during the regular season, and running back Taylor Hay, who rushed for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns. 

The Titans, who will be playing in their first conference championship in team history, have outscored their postseason opponents 84-2.

"Kansas City has been on our radar all season," said Surge head coach William Harris. "They're a well coached team with tons of talent."
