Pick ‘Em Marquee Matchup: Stamps fight for West Division crown in BC

The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — The Calgary Stampeders are facing a must-win in this week’s Pick ‘Em Marquee Matchup against the BC Lions.

A win for the Stamps and they clinch first in the West Division and will host the Western Final on November 18. A loss and they’ll host the Western Semi-Final the week before.

Even though the BC Lions’ playoff fate has already been determined – they will be crossing over to play the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Eastern Semi-Final – a win will still be on their minds at BC Place. The contest marks head coach Wally Buono’s final home game and the Lions will be determined to get a victory for their bench boss.

Calgary will eye snapping their three-game losing streak while the Lions will be riding the momentum of wins in three of their last four contests.
