Scouting the Beef: Omaha (5-1) got its quarterback back and returned to the win column with last week’s 38-24 victory at Sioux City. The victory came just three weeks after Omaha snapped the Bandits’ 31-game winning streak in a wild overtime game and put a halt to Sioux City’s string of 18 straight home wins. James McNear, who missed a loss to Wichita the previous week with a family emergency, was again under center and creating problems for defenses. The league leader in total offense per game, McNear completed 19 of 22 passes for 177 yards and three touchdowns and was also the Beef’s leading rusher with 36 yards. McNear is in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League’s top 10 for yards per game passing (first) and rushing (eighth). The Omaha offense, which mustered 17 points in McNear’s absence, was back in a rhythm against Sioux City, getting touchdowns from four players on its way to a 25-10 halftime lead. Running back R.J. Rollins and receiver Judd Harrold tacked on their second scores of the game after the break. The Beef defense did its part, too, limiting the Sioux City passing attack to 100 yards for the game. Omaha has held five of six opponents under 30 points.
