TORONTO — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have clinched the top spot in the West Division.

With the team’s dominant 45-0 win over the BC Lions on Saturday night, Winnipeg has clinched the first place in the West and will host the Western Final on December 5. This marks the first time the team will host a divisional final since 2011 and the first Western Final since 1972.

  • Winnipeg WIN = Winnipeg clinches first place in the division; earns the right to host the Western Final on December 5
  • Winnipeg LOSS and Saskatchewan LOSS = Winnipeg clinches a home playoff date
  • Winnipeg LOSS (by less than 21 points) and Calgary LOSS = Winnipeg clinches a home playoff date


  • No team can clinch a playoff spot this week


  • Winnipeg secured a playoff spot for the fifth consecutive season in Week 11.


If the fourth-place team in division A – A4 – has more points than the third-place team in division B – B3 (they cannot be tied), A4 will cross over and take the place of B3 in terms of playoff seeding. A4 will then compete against B2 in the division B semi-final.
