TORONTO — You know what they say, if you ain’t first, you’re last.
That has been the case for teams finishing second in the West Division for at least the last 10 years. The last time the runner-up in the division was able to win the Grey Cup was in 2013 when the Saskatchewan Roughriders finished 11-7 behind the 14-4 Calgary Stampeders. The team then went on a run to beat the BC Lions and the Stamps before taking home the title against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
