History lesson

Saskatchewan holds the edge in the all-time series 80-69-4. Lions are 17-13 against Saskatchewan since 1995, with nine of those games decided by a field goal or less.

A win would give the Lions a 13-5 record for the second consecutive season. This time, however, the team would be first overall.

B.C. hasn't been in that spot since 1999 when the team was also 13-5. B.C. Place Stadium also hosted the Grey Cup that season, but the Lions lost the western final.

CFL Awards

Pity poor Dave Dickenson. Not only did the Oct. 1 concussion keep him off-field for more than a month, it also appears to have cost him a player award nomination. Instead of Dickenson, RB Antonio Warren is B.C.'s nominee for outstanding player.

Other Lions nominated include DE Brent Johnson (outstanding Canadian), LB Otis Floyd (outstanding defensive player), OL Bobby Singh (outstanding lineman), DB Ryan Phillips (outstanding rookie) and KR Aaron Lockett (outstanding special teams player).

Souvenirs exposed

British Columbia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is inviting football fans to search high and low from their attics to their basements to find the best football souvenirs.

Artifacts will be chosen to appear in the temporary exhibit "Football Souvenirs: The Good, the Bad and the Orange," which opens Grey Cup week at the entrance of the hall on level 3 near Gate A.

Call 604-687-5520 for information.
