Hamilton (8-7-1) at Toronto (9-6-1)

The skinny: Tonight, 7:30 p.m. (TSN). It's been a great year for the Tiger-Cats. Rookie head coach Greg Marshall, a Western Mustang legend who at this point a year ago was guiding the McMaster University Marauders, has transformed last season's ragtag 1-17 outfit into a plus-.500 team.

And with the wins, the fans have come back to Ivor Wynne. The fun may not be over. With a win over the Argos, the Ticats will be in a position to overhaul the Argos and finish second in the East (which means hosting the Eastern semifinal). It's a prize neither side of this bitter rivalry takes lightly. After tackling the Argos, the Ticats finish up the regular season vs. Ottawa (read: win). The Argos go from the jaws of the 'Cats to the claws of the Montreal Alouettes (read: lose). Argos QB Damon Allen completed his first 13 passes against Calgary (a 29-11 Argo loss) after replacing struggling Michael Bishop. Allen may be a bit rusty but he's not that far away.

Cody's call: Tiger-Cats 27-25

Last week: 1-3; overall: 42-30-1
