As the Surge enter the second half of their regular-season schedule, they find themselves in a unique situation; preparing to face a team that handed them a defeat the previous week.

The Majestics' 22-10 triumph over then-ranked No. 2 Surge was one of the more surprising results of the season, but now they come to town as favorites. Both teams will be looking to improve or maintain their position in a heated playoff race.
