    It’s been a long week, but it’s been a blessed week.
    My wife called me Wednesday morning and said, ‘Babe, my water broke’, and so my sister and her mother rushed her to the hospital and sure enough, it had broke. I went in and talked to Coach Huff and he said, ‘Tim, go home’. He and Coach Kilam said, ‘Hey, it’s your first-born child, so go home’. I made it back in time for the birth and it was blessing. Ashton Tyler Brown came out healthy – seven lbs., seven oz., 20.5-inches.
    I told the coaches, ‘I’m not missing a game and I’ll be back’.

    Steady Stampeders hold off Roughriders for sixth win

    Saskatchewan's first victory will need to wait one more week after another late rally fell just short.
    Bo Levi Mitchell threw three touchdown passes and for 303 yards to lead the Stampeders to a 34-31 victory over the Roughriders on Saturday night at Mosaic Stadium in the annual Canadian Football Hall of Fame game.
    The teams entered the fourth quarter tied 24-24 until Tory Harrison scored his second receiving touchdown of the game on the first play of the final frame to break the tie and put the Stampeders up 31-24. On the next Calgary drive, Rene Paderes’ hit his fourth field goal of the game, a 40-yarder, to put the Stampeders up by 10 points.

    The Calgary Stampeders are now the sole occupants of first place in the West Division with a 34-31 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Saturday evening’s Hall of Fame Game from Mosaic Stadium.
    Slotback Eric Rogers now has a touchdown in six consecutive games and Matt Walter registered 100 yards along the ground as Bo Levi Mitchell moved to 21-4 as a starting quarterback.
    Rene Paredes converted a 46-yard field goal on the Stamps’ opening possession, their first points scored on an opening drive through eight games.

    Stamps run over Roughriders in wild, wacky game
    In a game in which every conceivable scenario unfolded, one thing remained the same.
    The Saskatchewan Roughriders are still winless in 2015.
    The Calgary Stampeders, relying on a healthy run game, a Hail Mary pass in the end zone and timely turnovers, won their first road game of the season, 34-31 over the Roughriders, now 0-8, as their own record improved to 6-2.

    Calgary Stampeders survive crazy night in Regina
    Pouring dirt on a bitter rival’s grave is high atop every football team’s wish-list.
    That’s exactly what the Calgary Stampeders did to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in front of the first Mosaic Stadium sellout of the season Saturday, crushing any sort of hope Corey Chamblin’s team had of salvaging the season with a Rider Nation-silencing 34-31 win.
    It provided a glimpse of vintage Stampeders (6-2) football, too, and it moves them into sole possession of first place in the West Division, after the Edmonton Eskimos (5-3) were manhandled by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats one night earlier.

    Mitchell, Stampeders down Roughriders 34-31
    Bo Levi Mitchell threw three touchdown passes and the Calgary Stampeders kept the Saskatchewan Roughriders winless on the season with a 34-31 victory Saturday at Mosaic Stadium. Calgary snapped a 24-24 tie when Mitchell and Tory Harrison hooked up on a 32-yard touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter.
    Mitchell used play-action in the backfield and found Harrison wide open in the flat. Harrison sprinted to the end zone untouched for his second touchdown of the game.

    Mitchell throws three touchdown passes as Stampeders beat Roughriders 34-31
    If moral victories counted, the Saskatchewan Roughriders may be undefeated this season.
    The Roughriders came up short against the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday, falling 34-31 and dropping their eighth straight.
    "It's high," said Saskatchewan quarterback Brett Smith of his team's frustration level. "We felt like we had opportunities to win and we didn't. Everybody is extremely disappointed."

    Riders fall to 0-8 with 34-31 loss to Stamps, another close-but-no-cigar showing
    The Saskatchewan Roughriders have to be getting frustrated with coming close. They've been competitive in the vast majority of their games this season, but were still 0-7 coming into Saturday night's clash with the Calgary Stampeders, and the same pattern repeated again in this one, an eventual 34-31 loss. The Roughriders did plenty of impressive things Saturday, but they still came up short, and that's further evidence that they still have a long ways to go if they want to salvage this season.

    Murray’s Musings on another Riders loss
    Some late-night musings on the Riders’ dropping to 0-8 after Saturday’s 34-31 loss to the Calgary Stampeders at Mosaic Stadium:
    – The story line remains the same with each mounting defeat. The offence puts up points, but the defence can’t come up with a stop when the Riders need one. On Saturday, Calgary faced second-and-15 on Saskatchewan’s 54-yard line with 53 seconds remaining in the game. The Riders surrendered a 19-yard run by Tory Harrison that iced the game. A stop and the Riders may have been in position to tie or even win the game. Instead they are left wondering what they have to do to actually win a game. How about making a key defensive stop?
