The game was in 1998. The Bombers were in the 2nd and last year of the Reinbold era. They were 0-10 at the time, playing against Saskatchewan in the Labour Day rematch (before it was called the Banjo Bowl). It was also guaranteed win night. Everyone in attendance would have received a free ticket to the last game of the season if the Bombers lost. Seems funny to guarantee a win when you are 0-10, but the Bombers were to host the Grey Cup that year and would have all the temporary seating set up for the final game and could give everyone a free seat in the temporary seating if they lost.
The Bombers were down 28-10 late in the 3rd quarter. Jeff Reinbold had stuck with T.J. Rubley through all of the first 10 loses to the point that Troy Kopp had barely seen the field. However, Reinbold, who for some reason loved Rubley, finally made the decision to pull Rubley late in the 3rd quarter and Kopp stared warming up. However when the Bombers got the ball back, a penalty on a punt return pushed them back to their own 5 yard line with only a couple of minutes left in the 3rd quarter. So down 28-10, ball on the 5 yard line, playing for a 0-10 team and about 17 minutes left in the game, with virtually no CFL experience, Kopp entered the game. He would lead the team 105 yards to a touchdown, and since by that time the 4th quarter was well under way, it was the first of 4 4th quarter TDs that Kopp led the Bombers to. The Bombers later scored with about a minute and a half left to make the score 35-29 (they missed 2 2-point convert attempts which accounts for the 19 points they have scored by this point of the 4th). The Bombers attempted a short kick, but failed to recover. The defense held and Saskatchewan attempted to pin the Bombers by their own goal line with only 40 second to play, but Eric Blount took the punt back 90 yards to the Riders 10. The Bombers gained 5 yards on first down, making it 2nd and goal from the 5. That is when Troy Kopp threw the winning TD pass. I believe the receiver was Mitch Running, but I could be wrong about that part. It was a great game, and it was exciting to be in the stands for it. One of the few good memories of the Reinbold years.
Reinbold was 6-26 as Bombers head coach for all of 1997 and the first 14 games of 1998 before he got fired. However he was 3-1 vs Saskatchewan during that time.
All of the fans ran onto the field after the win. Reinbold encouraged fans to do this every time the Bombers won. I guess he could afford to do this since his team rarely won.
