ARGOS TO HOST RIDERS IN EASTERN FINAL AT BMO FIELD

Sunday, November 12, 2017 — TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts (9-9-0) will host the Saskatchewan Roughriders (10-8-0) in the Eastern Final on Sunday, November 19, at 1:00 p.m. ET, the first-ever Argos playoff game BMO Field.

The Riders, who earned a berth in the playoffs via the crossover, advanced to the Eastern Final with a 31-20 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Sunday.

In two previous games against the Riders this season, the Argos fell short on both occasions. In Week 6, the Double Blue traveled to Saskatchewan and despite Ricky Ray’s sixth straight game with 300 passing yards, dropped to 3-3 with a 38-27 loss. In Week 16, the Argos hosted the Riders at BMO Field and lost on a last-second field goal from Tyler Crapigna.

The Argos and Riders have squared off in the playoffs just once before, in a 24-14 home win for Toronto in the 2002 Eastern Semi-Final.
