The Fever earned the right to host the Indoor Bowl and defeated the Rome Renegades to win the Championship. The Fever followed up their championship year with another fine one. The Fever won their first six home games, which kept the fans coming back for more. However, the team struggled a lot against the top two teams in the Pacific Conference: Billings and Rapid City. After a week one victory over Billings, the Fever ended up losing to the Outlaws 54-18 in their third meeting. The team did not beat Rapid City in either of their of their two games. After the regular season ended, the head coach resigned, leaving the Fever to fend for themselves in the playoffs. After easily getting past Wyoming, the team met Billings for the fourth time. Billings won going away, 48-21, ending Tri-Cities' repeat try. Following the 2006 season, the franchise moved to the af2.
