Head-to-Head: BC Lions vs Saskatchewan Roughriders

A brief glance at the CFL standings would inform you that the BC Lions, alongside the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts, form a tier of their own at the top of the CFL competition. This also bears out over the Lions' schedule to this point – they've lost to Winnipeg and Toronto, but won each of their other seven games by no fewer than 10 points.

This includes an earlier matchup against Saskatchewan, which BC won 19-9. It wasn't an overly exciting game for fans of either side – BC went up with a first-quarter touchdown and held the lead throughout, but neither team crossed the goal line beyond that point.

For the Lions, the absence of starting quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. – who left the game with an injury in the first quarter – is easy to diagnose as a factor in those offensive struggles. With Adams now healthy and coming off a 322-yard, four-touchdown performance last week in the team's 37-9 rout of the Calgary Stampeders, Lions fans have reason for optimism in this rematch.

The Roughriders have had a much rougher recent schedule, with a 1-4 slide through their last five games throwing a wrench in a season that started with several close, hard-fought wins.

Last week saw the team face their toughest loss of the season thus far, falling 41-12 against the Montreal Alouettes after starting quarterback Mason Fine left the game with an injury. Jake Dolegala – who completed 11 of 20 passes for 107 yards and an interception in relief of Fine – figures to make the start against the Lions.
