WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS

1. This marks the third straight year -- and fourth in the last six -- that the Bombers have finished their home schedule against the Stamps. Calgary is 2-1 in those meetings.

2. The Bombers will finish under .500 at home for the second straight season, as they are 3-5 at Canad Inns Stadium this year with one game remaining. They were 4-5 in 2005.

3. The Bombers are 84-92-1 against the Stampeders since 1946.

4. Slotback Milt Stegall has 50 games with at least 100 receiving yards in his career, and 12 -- which works out to 24% -- have come against Calgary.

5. In nine career appearances against the Stamps, quarterback Kevin Glenn has thrown just two touchdowns and eight interceptions.

6. Former Stampeders now with the Bombers include cornerback Omar Evans, defensive back Anthony Malbrough, fullback Scott Regimbald, defensive tackle Cam Legault, defensive back Kelly Malveaux and special teams/running backs coach Cory McDiarmid.

7. Two Bombers were drafted by the Stampeders but never played a down for them. They are defensive tackles Doug Brown and Jon Oosterhuis.

8. Running back Charles Roberts has five 100-yard performances in 11 career games against the Stamps, but he was held to only 23 yards on Sept. 15 in Calgary.

9. The Bombers haven't had much success against the Stamps at the Stadium over the past few years. Winnipeg is 3-7 in its last 10 home games against Calgary.

10. Linebacker Barrin Simpson has eight career interceptions, and three of them have come against Calgary.

CALGARY STAMPEDERS

1. Calgary has won seven of its last eight meetings against Winnipeg. The Bombers' lone win was a 37-16 triumph at the end of the 2004 season, and it didn't mean a thing in the standings.

2. Quarterback Henry Burris has thrown seven touchdown tosses in his last three starts against the Bombers.

3. Calgary was the last team to win the Grey Cup despite owning a losing record during the regular season. The Stamps (8-10) downed the Bombers (14-4) in the 2001 title game.

4. Slotback Jeremaine Copeland must love playing against the Bombers. In eight career games against the Blue and Gold, the former Alouettes receiver has eight touchdowns.

5. In their last game against the Bombers, a 43-9 victory on Sept. 15, the Stampeders racked up a whopping 522 yards of total offence.

6. Former Bombers on the Stamps roster include linebacker Brian Clark, safety Wes Lysack and wide receiver Markus Howell.

7. Placekicker Sandro DeAngelis has made an impressive 54 of 63 field goal attempts this year. The CFL's single-season record for field goals made is 59, which was set by Dave Ridgway in 1990.

8. This is Calgary's last game of the regular season. The Stamps and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have the bye in the final week.

9. The Stampeders haven't finished first in the West Division since 2000, and the B.C. Lions have already locked up the top spot this year.

10. Calgary's road record against the East Division since 2000 is 8-20.
