The Calgary Stampeders will play their second road game in as many weeks with a visit to Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field to face the Tiger-Cats on Saturday. The Week 5 matchup will be broadcast on TSN and can be heard on 770 CHQR radio. Kickoff is slated for 5 p.m. MDT.

Calgary (2-1) is coming off a 37-10 victory in Regina. Quarterback Nick Arbuckle made his first CFL start and completed better than 86 per cent of his passes including touchdowns to Eric Rogers and Reggie Begelton. Running back Ka’Deem Carey and cornerback Tre Roberson also got on the scoresheet with the first majors of their respective careers.

As for the Ticats (3-1), a 36-29 defeat in Montreal snapped a three-game winning streak to start the season during which they had outscored their opponents 128-41.

In 2018, the Red and White beat Hamilton by a score of 28-14 in their season-opener and later took out the Tiger-Cats 43-28 in mid-September.

An impressive 13-5-2 road record for the Stamps against Eastern opposition since 2014 includes an unblemished 4-0 mark at Tim Hortons Field.

Ticats defensive lineman Ja’Gared Davis and defensive back Tunde Adeleke will be facing their former team for the first time on Saturday. Davis spent the previous three seasons in Calgary while Adeleke was a Stamp for two years. Both were part of last year’s Grey Cup championship campaign.

Meanwhile, Stamps defensive back Courtney Stephen – who is poised to suit up for his 100th regular-season game – came over from Hamilton in the off-season after six years with the Ticats.

Next week’s schedule has the Stamps hosting the Toronto Argonauts on Thursday, July 18 and the Tiger-Cats on a bye week before welcoming Winnipeg on Friday, July 26.
