Stampeders Beat Roughriders for Second Straight Week

It was tense, not always pretty and a great advert for Canadian football with plenty of big plays! This game always promised to be exciting.

Calgary’s Big Upset, Montreal Stuns Hamilton – Week 9 CFL Recap

Calgary holding off Saskatchewan was probably the biggest upset of Week 9 in the Canadian Football League, but it wasn’t the only highlight. The others being Montreal’s win in OT against Hamilton and Ottawa stopping Edmonton.
