On Fri. June 29, 2012, the Saskatchewan Roughriders defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 43 to 16.

The Riders won that game (the Cats' season opener) by 27 points. It was the most lopsided defeat the Ticats endured under George Cortez, who was fired by Scott Mitchell after the season ended (the team finished 6-12 and missed the playoffs).

5 of their losses in 2012 were by 3 points or less (3 games lost by 3 points, 2 games lost by 2 points).
