VANCOUVER - The Edmonton Eskimos are still looking for their first victory at the recently renovated BC Place Stadium.
Since the new roof was revealed in the Lions homecoming in a Sept. 30 game against the Eskimos, Edmonton is 0-3, including the West Division final.
"It's a tough venue to play in," said Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed. "It's tough like any other CFL venue we can name.
"We can't be awestruck by it. The new guys, I have asked that they get over early and see it so when they come out they don't ooh and ahh and it's just about playing football."
LOGAN LOW-DOWN: The Eskimos signed free-agent punt returner Tony Logan to their practice roster.
The five-foot-10, 180-pound University of Maryland product led the ACC and ranked third in the nation with an average of 18.1 yards per return.
His cousin, Kyle Wilson, played for Boise State and was the 29th-overall draft pick in 2010 by the New York Jets.
"We attempted to sign Tony right after the NFL draft, but he accepted an opportunity to attend mini-camp with the St. Louis Rams," Eskimos GM Eric Tillman said.
