Canadian Football League: Provincial Rivals Battle On Labour Day
Toronto vs Hamilton: Argos look to retain East lead
Facts are facts and the Canadian Football League East Division stinks. That said, the action is normally high flying and entertaining when Toronto and Hamilton battle in the Fight For Ontario on Labour Day. The Argos sit at 3-6 and are coming off a 41-27 thumping in Edmonton last week. The Tiger-Cats, who have already had two bye weeks, are a dismal 1-6 but hope to have QB Zach Collaros back in the fold as he is practicing after a stint on the disabled list with a concussion. No matter who starts for Hamilton - Toronto QB Ricky Ray will be the better pivot on the field in this contest. The Tiger-Cats best hope for a win comes from their defense here.
Calgary vs Edmonton: Labour Day Classic will live up to its billing
CFL schedule makers saved the best for last on Labour Day as the Battle of Alberta will have a tangible playoff feel to it today. Calgary and Edmonton are both 7-1 but the Stampeders are placed first overall in the West Division thanks to their thrilling 26-22 win over the Eskimos in Edmonton back in Week5. Edmonton looked impressive while knocking off the Argos last weekend while Calgary scored a lot late to defeat the Redblacks 32-7 in Ottawa. Calgary has won the last two Labour Day Classics but the margin of victory has been just four points. Having RB Jon Cornish back in the fold in a huge boost for the Stampeders offense.
