The Toronto Argonauts punched their ticket to the Grey Cup with a 34-27 win over the Montreal Alouettes in the East Division final this Sunday. The franchise will be making its first Grey Cup appearance since winning the title five years ago in 2017. The Grey Cup will be held on Sunday, November 20th at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan.
The Argos will be squaring off against the mighty Winnipeg Blue Bombers team, which will be looking for its third consecutive Grey Cup. The Blue Bombers took care of business against the BC Lions in the Western Finals, taking the win fairly easily in the end at 28-20.
The Blue Bombers finished the regular season with the best record in the league at 15-3 earning them a first week bye in the playoffs. The Argos finished atop the table in the East Division with a record of 11-7 during the regular season.
Both teams have yet to be really tested this postseason which makes for an exciting storyline entering the big game. While the Blue Bombers haven’t missed a beat all season, the Argos began to find their feet towards the end of the regular season, finishing strong. Expect this heavyweight battle to be much closer than the games leading up.
