The B.C. Lions have confidence in their running game once again thanks to the arrival of Stefan Logan.

Whether that confidence will translate into victory on Sunday in the West Division semifinal against the Saskatchewan Roughriders remains to be seen. The sample size is too small, and there are varying factors that might have led to false positivity when it comes to B.C.'s ball carriers.

Lions tailback Andrew Harris was going nowhere fast a month ago, becoming almost an afterthought in B.C.'s offensive attack. He managed more than 56 yards in a game only twice over an 11-game span between Aug. 5 and Oct. 19, and no more than 76 yards.

Then Logan, the former Lions tailback/returner who spent the last few years in the NFL, showed up in mid-October and life returned to normal. Harris had 76 yards against Edmonton on Oct. 25 and then followed it up with his first 100-yard outing since July 30 in the regular-season finale against Calgary.
