The Rush is looking for its second consecutive road win when it faces the Cleveland Gladiators Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena (6 p.m.)
  In the teams' first meeting, the Rush pulled out a 59-56 victory at Allstate Arena April 9.
The Rush (5-2) snapped a two-game losing streak on Saturday in Dallas, while Cleveland (3-4) had its three-game winning streak snapped last week with a 46-44 loss at Jacksonville.
 Rush quarterback Russ Michna was been named the Arena Football League's Russell Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team's 63-56 win over Dallas.
Michna completed 28-of-35 passes for 339 yards and four touchdowns, without throwing an interception.  He also rushed for seven yards and a TD.
"I am proud of the way Russ bounced back and played last week," Rush coach Mike Hohensee said in a statement. "I think he might have taken too much of the blame for our two-game losing streak, so I am glad he is receiving a good deal of the credit for this week's win.  He truly made some great throws and decisions that were key factors in each of our scoring drives."
The Rush returns to Allstate Arena June 4, and will host Southern Division leading Jacksonville Sharks.
