American Thanksgiving and Grey Cup

Is this the first year the Grey Cup was NOT played on the Sunday immediately following American Thanksgiving?

Season was moved back one week to avoid blizzard weather … or was this a coincidence?

Anyone know?

US TG is always the 4th Thursday of November. So when November 1st is on a Friday, it pushes it back a week later than usual.

The last time it happened was the same day six years ago; November 24, 2013. The earliest the Grey Cup has been played is November 16, 2003, so this has happened quite a few times (any game played 24th or earlier).

I prefer the Grey Cup game before the US Thanksgiving Day.
