November 19, 2022

Bombers, Argos vie for CFL’s Grey Cup … Its championship weekend in Canada where the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts will vie for the CFL championship in the 109th edition of the Grey Cup game in Regina on Sunday. Kick-off is set for 6:30 PM ET with coverage on TSN in Canada and ESPN2 in the U.S. The Bombers, who flirted earlier in the year with the possibility of an undefeated season before finishing with a CFL best 15-3 record, are heavy favorites to win a third straight Grey Cup title. For their part, the Argos were 11-7 to win the Eastern Division, but still may have only been the league’s 4th best team behind Calgary and B.C. The Bombers are led by QB Zach Collaros, a former Cincinnati Bearcat, who was listed as questionable earlier in the week, but appears good to go, while his opposite number for the Argos is McLeod Bethel-Thompson, a Sacramento State grad, who led the CFL is passing years this fall throwing for over 4,700 yards. Other players to watch for the Bombers are former Kansas State WR Dalton Schoen, who led the league with over 1,400 receiving yards this season and WR Janarion Grant, who doesn’t play much in the regular offense, but is superb return guy. Meanwhile, Toronto CB Jamal Peters, who played at Mississippi State, could generate a lot of interest from NFL teams this winter after leading the Canadian league with 6 picks.
