TORONTO - It’s the battle of the backups, two emerging quarterbacks who will provide an interesting backdrop to what might turn out to be a preview of this year’s Grey Cup.

For now, it’s the best of the West versus the elite of the East, the Stamps versus the Argos in a rematch of last year’s CFL championship game.

With so many games left to be played in the regular season, the game within the game is one worth watching.

Bo Levi Mitchell, 23, and Zach Collaros, 25, have acquitted themselves quite well this season, each stepping up when incumbent quarterbacks have had to step down following injuries.

Mitchell, 23, and Collaros, 25, are as different as the Argos and Stamps.

Calgary likes to run a balanced attack, which is kind of obvious when such a weapon as a Jon Cornish is available in the backfield.

The Argos are a passing team, which is equally obvious when a player of Ricky Ray’s ilk is running the show.
