HAMILTON – Linebacker Simoni Lawrence remembers the last time the Hamilton Tiger-Cats faced the Calgary Stampeders.

Calgary embarrassed Hamilton 60-1 at McMahon Stadium on July 29, a game Lawrence could only watch due to a lower-body injury.

He will be back in the lineup Friday as Hamilton (4-10) hosts Calgary (12-1-1) at Tim Hortons Field.

The Ticats are coming off a 30-13 road win over Winnipeg last weekend while Calgary plays for the first time since its 59-11 home win over Montreal on Sept. 29.

The bad news for Hamilton is Calgary is 15-0 coming off a bye week since 2005 and has won 10 straight versus the Ticats, who are 4-2 under interim head coach June Jones.
