It's Friday Night Football and a doubleheader so you know it's a good night in the CFL. It's the third Battle of Alberta in a month! Lots of roster changes for both teams. Including several starters with the most notable by the average viewer being the Eskimos rolling out Matt Nichols as their starting QB. Calgary and Edmonton rank 6th and 7th respectively for most plays with the defense on the field. Calgary's defense has been out there for 670 plays while the Eskimos have faced 691. Only Hamilton has faced more plays. Nik Lewis has been passing milestones all season and has a pair on the horizon again. He is 117 yards short of a 9th consecutive 1000 yard season and only 5 yards away from passing Earl "The Pearl" Winfield to move into #14 all time. Jon Cornish reaches a milestone of his own tonight as it's his 100th CFL game, he's also 53 yards away from a 1000 yard season. Cornish would be the 8th Canadian to reach 1000 yards since they calculated individual rushing in 1954. Kevin Glenn will be playing in his 111th consecutive game which is 2nd on the active Ironman list Johnny Forzani is sitting tied for second in the CFL with 7 catches of 30+ yards. Did you know trivia - Jeff Garcia sits 8th in All Time Stampeder rushing yards with 2,358. Key for Edmonton is their linebackers. All 3 of the starters rank in the Top 9 for tackles this year with JC Sherritt leading the way with 101 and only 29 away from setting the single season record (note tackles were first calculated as a stat in the early 80s). When Nichols takes the first snap for Edmonton they will join Winnipeg as the only clubs with 3 different starting QBs this year. Calgary and Saskatchewan have both had 2 different starters and the other 4 clubs have stuck with the same signal caller all year. Between the two teams they have 14 players born in Alberta. Now you're loaded with info for the game, let's get to kickoff!
