The Tulsa Mustangs were a minor-league football outfit that last for only 5 games of a planned 16-game schedule in the American Football Association in 1979.  The team had a 1-4 record at the time they folded in midseason.  The AFA was a southern U.S. minor league that stretched from Jacksonville to San Antonio and as far north as Louisville during the 1979 season.

Most of the Tulsa Mustangs players were local players from Oklahoma and Texas universities and junior colleges.  A roster from one of their five games is available in the games section below.

According to Wikipedia, the Mustangs played their few home games at Skelly Stadium, but we haven’t been able to find confirmation for that claim.
