OTTAWA - The RedBlacks will find out where they stand Saturday night.

Measuring stick. Statement game.

Both apply as the RedBlacks host defending Grey Cup champion Saskatchewan Roughriders in the club's second ever game in front of a sellout 24,000 plus at the TD Place Stadium.

With a 1-3 record in the first four games of the season, the RedBlacks are still in the thick of the Eastern playoff race, but if they're going to stay there they'll have to string a few wins together.

A victory over the Green Riders would go a long way in building up confidence.
