Spencer had 116 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just four receptions as the Redblacks clinched top spot in the CFL East with a 30-13 rout of the Tiger-Cats on Saturday in Hamilton.

Bowman collected two defensive tackles, including a quarterback sack, and returned two fumbles, including one for a touchdown, in the Alouettes’ 40-10 thumping of the visiting Toronto Argonauts on Sunday.
