TONIGHT'S GAME

ORLANDO PREDATORS (7-8)

AT TAMPA BAY STORM (11-4)

WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m.; St. Pete Times Forum

TV/RADIO: BHSN, Ch. 47/1250 AM

NEED TO KNOW: Jacksonville's win Friday night over Spokane secured for the Sharks the No. 1 seed in the American Conference for the postseason. That means Tampa Bay is the No. 3 seed and will travel to second-seeded Tulsa next Saturday for its playoff opener. ... Tampa Bay has a chance to match a franchise record with its 12th regular-season win. The Storm have done it three times (1996, 1998 and 2003), and each time they advanced to the ArenaBowl. ... Storm LB/FB Eric Ortiz, an Alonso High product, was named the AFL's Ironman of the Week following his performance in last week's win over Alabama. Ortiz rushed for his first two TDs of the season and had 4.5 tackles. ... Storm QB Brett Dietz (4,656 passing yards) should surpass Shane Stafford's record for passing yards in a season (4,793 yards in 2006).
