7 Things – Stamps @ Riders


1. Us: (1-3)

The Stamps are looking to get back into the win column this week when they head to Saskatchewan to take on the Roughriders. Calgary came out strong last week against Winnipeg but were unable to keep up with the 4-1 Blue Bombers down the stretch and fell 24-11. Running back Dedrick Mills had 97-yards and a touchdown on the ground, while defensive lineman James Vaughters picked up two sacks to lead the defence.

2. Them: Saskatchewan Roughriders (3-1)

The Riders are 3-1 on the season after taking down the Edmonton Elks last Thursday. Trevor Harris led a late touchdown drive to secure the Saskatchewan win.

3. Us Vs Them

This is the second of three matchups between these two historic rivals. Saskatchewan slid past the Stampeders 29-26 in overtime a few weeks ago.


4. Fast Facts:

Since Mosaic Stadium opened in 2017, the Stampeders are 5-1 in six regular-season visits to Regina including a 32-21 victory in Week 20 of the 2022 season, the Red and White’s most recent visit to Saskatchewan.

Calgary is 1-1 on the road so far this season and 0-3 against West Division opponents. The Roughriders are 1-1 at home and 3-1 against the West.
