๐Ÿ€ No. 8 @UCLAMBB (17-3, 8-1) ๐™–๐™ฉ
๐Ÿ€ @USC_Hoops (14-6, 6-3)

A rivalry matchup with #USC will test their mettle, but #UCLA’s offensive rating (113.4) and defensive rating (90.0) makes them outliers in the #Pac12.

The Stampeders are the real dealย  (and the Elks just can’t figure it out)

Thursdayโ€™s game was an absolute demolition, with the Calgary Stampeders defeating the Edmonton Elks by a score of 49-6.

The Elks kept in close the first quarter before the Stampeders put them away, going on a 46-3 run in the rest of the game. The Stampeders had many ways in which they scored: field goals, a safety, 89-yard touchdown pass, a missed field goal returned for a touchdown, a defensive touchdown and many more offensive touchdowns.

The Stampedersโ€™ big three of Bo Levi Mitchell, Kaโ€™Deem Carey and Malik Henry looked dominant. Mitchell completed 77% of his passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns. One of Mitchellโ€™s touchdowns was to Malik Henry who finished the game with 6 catches and 150 yards, as Kaโ€™Deem Carey ran all over the Elks with 104 yards on 12 carries.

Edmonton looks completely lost, as they have been outscored by a combined 100 points in their first 5 games. Calgary looks to build off their win and put their undefeated record to the test against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers next week, while the Elks face the Montreal Alouettes.

Roughriders up for the fight

The Ottawa Redblacks have played decent football this year but just can’t get over the line.

On Friday, the Roughriders beat the Redblacks by a score of 28-13 due to Cody Fajardoโ€™s strong play and by limiting their mistakes. The Roughriders didn’t have a single turnover and only had four penalties for 35 yards during the game.

On the other hand, the Redblacks committed three turnovers and were charged with eight penalties for 75 yards. The Roughriders continued to have explosive plays, as Frankie Hickson ran for a 63-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Saskatchewan takes on the Toronto Argonauts next week, with the Redblacks facing the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Blue Bombers continue to take care of business

The Blue Bombers were in control of this game from the get-go, returning the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown.

They followed up their great start by scoring on three straight drives and putting the BC Lions in a 24-0 hole in the second quarter.

The Lions did not go away easily, scoring two 35+ yard touchdowns to cut the lead to 27-14 right before the half.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers did not let the BC Lions back in the game, outscoring them 16 to 8 in the second half and winning by a score of 43 to 22. The Blue Bombers took advantage of the Lionsโ€™ three turnovers and capitalized on quarterback Zach Collarosโ€™ strong play (288 yards and 3 touchdowns).

Next week the undefeated Blue Bombers face their toughest test yet versus the Calgary Stampeders while the BC Lions get the week off.
