Blue Bombers vs Roughriders Live Stream

The visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders (10-5) will face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (11-3) in the second CFL West final in a row between the longtime rivals.

Accustomed to playing a much-anticipated Labour Day home-and-home set annually, the prairie towns are squaring off in the playoffs for the third consecutive season.

It’s the second of two rivalry games on CFL division final Sunday with the Toronto Argonauts hosting the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a Battle-of-the-QEW East championship prior to the Winnipeg-Saskatchewan clash.

Here is a capsule look at the West final:

THE SCHEDULE: Sunday, 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT at IG Field.

AT STAKE: The winner goes to Hamilton for the Grey Cup against the Tiger-Cats or Argonauts on Dec. 12.

THE SEASON SERIES: The Bombers were 2-0 against the Roughriders. Winnipeg won 23-8 in Regina on Sept. 5 and 33-9 at home six days later. The Roughriders didn’t score a touchdown in the two games and didn’t score a point in either second half.
