TORONTO – The Ottawa REDBLACKS did their part last week by part by beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Friday night. Now, they need to sit back and wait to see what next week has in store for their rivals the Toronto Argonauts.
Sitting just a point up and with a bye in the final week of the season, the REDBLACKS fate is simple: An Argos win in BC next week and Ottawa finishes second; an Argos loss to BC and the REDBLACKS will host their third consecutive Eastern Final on November 19 at TD Place.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are set to host their first home playoff game since 2011 after a 23-5 win over the Calgary Stampeders Friday night.
The Bombers will now host the Edmonton Eskimos in the Western Semi-Final.
