Montreal Alouettes (8-10) @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) (Sunday, November 10)

This is a surprisingly intriguing match-up: each of these two teams has had moments of brilliance followed by moments of horror. Montreal has suffered through season-changing injuries, but those injuries have also allowed young stars like QB Troy Smith to shine. Hamilton's veteran corps have struggled to maintain any sort of consistency, grinding out tough games one week and dropping easy matches the next. The record and home field (albeit in Guelph) give Hamilton the edge on paper, but I don't think anybody really knows what this Montreal team is capable of. Eastern Semi-Final Preview

B.C. Lions (11-7) @ Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-7) (Sunday, November 10)

This is the semi that's been destined to happen since bye week. Saskatchewan got off to a hot start and cooled down, B.C. tripped out of the gate but caught up. The Roughriders have been grooming themselves for a Grey Cup run this year, while the Lions have been working through patchwork lineups and quarterback controversies. Yet here they are, with matching records, meeting in the semi-final. Saskatchewan's got a clear edge with home field and RB Kory Sheets healthy again, but B.C. isn't going down without a fight.

Milo, Sask (by the way, kickers up here also get points for missing field goals and touchback punts - crazy, eh?)

Five minutes into the third quarter and HAM boots a FG to make it 3-2. The over is not looking good today.
