Montreal guts it out in the bitter Guelph winds, but Hamilton wins it in overtime to make it to the East final. B.C. comes on strong in Regina, but the Roughriders rides a strong fourth quarter to seal the deal.

DIVISION FINALS

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) @ Toronto Argonauts (11-7) (Sunday, November 10)

Lookit this! Henry Burris and Ricky Ray, so long the faces of the Battle of Alberta, are now representing in the Battle of Ontario. Ray's solid year was interrupted by injury, but returned to put up career highs in his last game of the season. Burris led the league in passing yardage, but seemed to struggle in last week's semi. The Argos have lost star RB Chad Kackert to ankle surgery, but Jerious Norwood is ready to fill in once again. Make no mistake: under the closed SkyDome, this one will be all about the offence.

Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-7) @ Calgary Stampeders (14-4) (Sunday, November 10)

Both these teams feature league-leading running backs: Kory Sheets for the 'Riders and Jon Cornish for the Stamps. And given that the forecast calls for fog (?) and a high of -14 Celsius (!), they'll get plenty of work in. As for the passing game: veteran Kevin Glenn is trying to finally get over the Grey Cup hump, while it may just be the legs and not arm of Darian Durant that take the 'Riders back home.

Offence Wins Championships Bonus

Pick the team whose offence will have the greatest combined yardage in Sunday's games.

Turnovers Kill Ya Bonus

Last week there were 7 fumbles in the semi-final games. Given the weather and the teams involved, I'm setting the over/under for this week at 7.5. Pick whether the total number of fumbles this Sunday will be OVER or UNDER that number. All fumbles count, regardless of who recovered the ball.

Good luck!

(BTW, we Americans with a sense of humor wish to thank Canada for giving us Rob Ford ... usually we give you our nut cases for your entertainment. I'm just saddened he appeared in a Thursday press conference wearing the Argo double-blues)
