Bombers receiver Milt Stegall, on the shelf with cracked ribs the last three games, says the Bombers need to be successful early on in tonight's game.

"The main thing is getting the crowd out of the game," Stegall said. "If you let this crowd get in the game, it can definitely go the other way. But as long as we go out there and get this crowd out of the game early, we stand a good chance of winning."

Like they did in '97, when the Bombers won 43-12 -- the Labour Day game Stegall remembers best.

"I just remember (former Bomber) K.D. Williams, that's when he got traded to Saskatchewan, he was just talkin' so much before the game. And we went out and beat 'em. That's the one that stands out for me.

"This is a big one for both of us," Stegall concluded. "They have a little more momentum than us right now. But once you step on that field, those lights come on and the opening kickoff happens, that momentum means nothing. It's all about getting the momentum in that particular game."
