Some of the top offensive talent in the CFL will be featured at McMahon Stadium on Saturday as the Stampeders play host to the Toronto Argonauts. Kickoff for the contest is 7 p.m. MDT and the game will be broadcast on TSN, ESPN3, News Talk 770 and Sirius XM 167.

Calgary’s Bo Levi Mitchell and Toronto’s Ricky Ray are two of the premier quarterbacks in the league and the Stamps boast the league’s leading rusher in Jerome Messam. In addition, the Argos are getting a great year out of veteran slotback S.J. Green, who is second in the CFL with 850 receiving yards.

Calgary (6-1-1) heads into Week 10 in second place in the West Division, one point back of Edmonton, while Toronto (4-5) leads the East despite a sub-.500 record. The Stamps are 3-0 at McMahon so far this season and 3-1-1 against East Division clubs. The Boatmen are 1-3 on the road and 0-4 against the West.

The Stamps are riding a four-game winning streak including a 21-17 victory last week at Vancouver’s BC Place. The Argos, meanwhile, snapped a three-game losing skid by dumping the visiting Montreal Alouettes 38-6.

It will be Fan Appreciation Night on Saturday with prize giveaways throughout the game.
