On the football field, the Battle of Alberta has never really gone anywhere.

Sure, it's been a while since it meant this much in the standings, but once the players strap on the pads, the rivalry is still there.

While it may be the same between the white lines, the fact the Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos are tied atop the West Division with identical 7-1 marks will, without a doubt, affect the bottom line.
