Anyone think that BC will actually win this one? I've been burned a couple of times picking them to win and they have faltered both times, so until they show that they can play a full 60 minutes, I'll be siding with the opposition.

I think their no-huddle offense is definitely under the microscope right now. Unless they can consistently move the ball better against the stronger teams, they might have to gear it down because just making your two-and-outs faster is no recipe for winning in Canadian ball.

The game is on and the roof at BC Place is open!

It is 7-3 BC early in the first quarter.

7-6 BC after one quarter. Edmonton has the ball after an Ojo pick of Travis Lulay.

There is 3:37 left in the second quarter. BC just missed a FG and Kendall Lawrence returned it to the BC 41. It is 13-10 Edmonton.

EE is starting to run away with this one - not literally of course since BC has done more rushing. BC just can't seem to put more than one good drive together - at least to put points on the board.

Well surprise, surprise BC managed to pull out the victory with a last minute TD and then a pick off of Nichols to kill any hope of an EE response. Guess I was wrong on this one but I don't mind too much.

26-23 final (I think) for BC
