Bombers look to clinch division with win over Lions

I don't usually comment on these things, but when I read the Bombers are trying to clinch first place in the west for the first time since 2011, I had to respond.
The Lions won first in the west that year, and played the Bombers in the Grey Cup (they were in the East that year, remember?). The reason I remember this, is the lions started 0-5 and won the whole damn thing. Fact check, fact check, fact check...

Division , not overall.
Winnipeg was in the East in 2011

BC 11/7 west division
Winnipeg 10/8 East division
