The QBs taking the field are Vernon Adams and Zach Collaros. This is a matchup between the best two teams in the CFL this season, but only one can make it to the Grey Cup!

Their average yardage per outing topped 417.3 and they have gained 2,503 total passing yards and scored an average of 33 points per game this year.

Their ground game has yielded 1,599 yards (88.8 yards/game), 15 touchdowns on its own, and 12 passing game touchdowns totalling 210.2 yards per contest and rank them number one overall in terms of points against them this season.

Over 18 games this season they have allowed 1,782 rushing yards from opponents; passing yards are another matter, however; giving up 4,149 total yards, which places them 4th outright, though 230.5 yards per outing through air has resulted in an acceptance percentage of 65.8% and total yielded 329.5 yards per contest – placing them 2nd outright among CFL clubs!
This should be a great game, I am going with the more complete team and the better quarterback. Take the Bombers and give the -4.5.
