TORONTO — The weather is cooling down but things are heating up in the CFL as Week 14 of the regular season gets under way.
The Alouettes and Lions kickoff on Friday night as Montreal hosts BC in the first of three games this week. Wally Buono makes his final appearance in Montreal as a coach – a place where he played ten seasons (1972-81). BC will be looking to make it two wins in a row as they have a chance to tie the idle Winnipeg Blue Bombers at 10 points with a victory in Montreal. It won’t be easy as the Montreal Alouettes are fresh off a bye and going for three wins in a row, a feat they have not accomplished since 2016. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Saturday has two games on slate. In Hamilton, the Canadian Football Hall of Fame game will take place when the Calgary Stampeders come to Tim Hortons Field beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET. The Class of 2018 – Paul Brûlé, Frank Cosentino, Scott Flory, the late Tom Hugo, Hank Ilesic, Brent Johnson and Barron Miles – will be honoured at halftime. Hamilton (6-5) enters the game riding a three-game winning streak and look to extend it as they eye the first-place position in the East Division. After a near last play comeback in Edmonton, Calgary (9-2) search for their 10th victory of the year. If they get it, it will mark the 11th consecutive season they reach double-digit wins.
The final game of the week features the East-leading Ottawa REDBLACKS taking on the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Saskatchewan shoots for their fifth win in a row for the first time since 2014. Ottawa REDBLACKS hope to finish their two-game west road trip with a 1-1 record following their loss last week versus BC. The game is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET.
