Bombers Game Day

KIRK PENTON -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 9:13 AM ET

REMEMBER WHEN ...

... Milt Stegall caught four passes -- all for touchdowns -- from Kevin Glenn in Winnipeg's 44-23 win over B.C. at the Stadium last Oct. 10? Hope you have a good memory, because that won't be happening tonight. Lions QB Buck Pierce started that game, too, and completed 12 of 22 passes for 133 yards before leaving in the third quarter with a knee injury.

KEEP AN EYE ON ...

Winnipeg's Mike Quinn, No. 12

The 6-foot-4, 218-pound quarterback will make his first CFL start tonight in place of the injured Kevin Glenn. It's been more than eight years since he started a regular-season game, which is an eternity in football years.
