Think there’s no football to watch this weekend? Well, you’re wrong. The Lingerie Football League Divisional Championship games are on Sunday night on MTV2.In the Western Conference, the unbeaten Las Vegas Sin will take on the Los Angeles Temptation. And in the Eastern conference, the unbeaten Philly Passion take on the Tampa Breeze.

Both western teams are coming off wins and are prepared to battle. L.A. centre Natalie Jahnke told LFL.com:

“They’re [Las Vegas] going into the playoffs undefeated. We were there before. Obviously, their confidence is very high and they feel like the sky’s the limit, but they do need to understand that we’re a whole different group from the one they played at the beginning of the season.”

And after going undefeated last year, and losing in the Lingerie Bowl, Philly is determined this time around:

“The only thing that stands in the way between us and another shot at the Lingerie Bowl is Tampa,” Philly’s Marirose Roach told LFL360.com, “We should have had it last year and we don’t want anything to come in between us and our championship this year.”

So tune in Sunday to see four teams compete for a spot in the Lingerie Bowl next weekend. Don’t know much about the league?

The LFL announced the organisation’s strategy to develop leagues for girls.

“With the growing popularity around the LFL, younger and younger girls are starting to dream of playing LFL football. In recent months and years, parents of young ladies routinely contact LFL league offices inquiring about everything ranging from what size football do you use to what form of training should I place my daughter into now to prepare her for LFL Football.””
