On Sunday, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers visit Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan to play the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the West division final with the winner moving on to play in the Grey Cup. The Blue Bombers were 11-7 during the regular season. Winnipeg defeated the Calgary Stampeders in the West semifinal last Sunday 35-14. The Blue Bombers scored their share of points in the win, but it was the defense that characterized the victory.
The defense held the Stampeders scoreless in the second half, while the offense put up 27 points. Winnipeg’s defense pressured Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell relentlessly which resulted in Mitchell’s worst ever CFL game with 116 yards and one touchdown, but three interceptions. On offense, Zach Collaros shared duty at quarterback with Chris Streveler. The combination will try to accomplish the same results against the Roughriders.
Saskatchewan finished the regular season at 13-5 and the West champion. The Roughriders last played on November 2 and defeated the Edmonton Eskimos 23-13 in their final game of the regular season.
