    Calgary Stampeders: Not much drama in match against Lions

    The next meeting, however, would be entirely different.
    When the Calgary Stampeders (14-3) trot out onto the BC Place turf Friday night (8 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770) with the CFL’s West Division already wrapped up, the focus will be on staying healthy, staying sharp and staying on course.

    Stephen: Stampeders in it to win it vs. Lions
    It is the age old dilemma for Canadian Football League teams.
    How do you play a game when there are no standing repercussions on the line and a bye week is staring you right in the face?
    For the Stampeders, the temptation is to rest any and all starters, in hopes of saving their bodies for the upcoming Division Final. Then, of course, there are the repercussions of having players inactive for a three week period.
    Do they lose that edge heading to the biggest game of the year?

    Lions host Stampeders in season finale
    The B.C. Lions are looking for more bang from their Buck on Friday as they host the Calgary Stampeders in the final game of the CFL regular season for both teams.
    Fresh off a strong relief appearance in a win over Edmonton last week, Buck Pierce will start at quarterback for the Lions as they prepare for the playoffs. It will be Pierce’s first start since July 19 while he was with a Winnipeg club that discarded him in a September trade to the Lions.
