The Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampeders were the two hottest teams in the Canadian Football League towards the end of the season and find themselves in the historic 100th Grey Cup.
The Argos have won four games in a row, while the Stamps are on a six-game win streak and have won an impressive 11 of 13 games.
Stampeders quarterback Kevin Glenn is playing in his first Grey Cup, while Argos pivot Ricky Ray will be appearing in his fourth and looking to win his third, his first with Toronto.
Both clubs have explosive running backs — the Stamps with Jon Cornish, the Argos with Chad Kackert — and their offences and defences are both playing well, which could make for a very exciting game.
More than 52,000 CFL fans are expected to be in attendance at the Rogers Centre, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The halftime show features Canadian performers Gordon Lightfoot, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and Marianas Trench.
The betting lines have Calgary favoured to win by 1.5 with the over/under being 54.5 total points.
A group of Sportsnet contributors that are in Toronto covering the Grey Cup give their predictions on who will win the big game. Have your say below!
Perry Lefko, Sportsnet.ca — Argos 26, Stamps 25
The difference in the game will be quarterback Ricky Ray. He has been playing like the future Hall of Famer he will one day become. And maybe, just maybe, the Argos will feel at home.
MVP: Ricky Ray
Top Canadian: Jon Cornish.
Arash Madani, Sportsnet — Calgary by 6
The Stampeders red zone defence will deliver for the second consecutive Sunday, which should be the deciding factor. Expect some wrinkles on special teams.
MVP: Larry Taylor
Top Canadian: Rob Cote, who will shine in short yardage.
David Alter, Sportsnet 590 The Fan — Argos 22, Stamps 19
Emotions will be riding high. But Scott Milanovich has this team prepared well. Unlike the Argos teams of the past, there is a real sense of unity among the players, and last week’s win in Montreal was a real watershed moment for the Double-Blue.
Top Canadian: Jon Cornish
Jeff Simmons, Sportsnet.ca — Argos 27, Stamps 23
In a quarterback-driven league, Ray does enough to lift the hometown Argos over a tough Stampeders squad. The veteran pivot has thrown for over 700 yards in two victories over Calgary this season.
Top Canadian: Jon Cornish
Mike Johnston, Sportsnet.ca — Argos 32, Stamps 27
The Stamps have been the best team in the CFL for the last two months, but the Argos seem to be peaking at the ideal time. The Argos will stifle Glenn and Cornish and spread the ball around effectively on offence.
MVP: Chad Kackert
Top Canadian: Andre Durie
