If it is the first Sunday in September, it means the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are in town to play the Riders in the first half of their annual back-to-back games, with this one being the first to go at new Mosaic Stadium.
The Riders go in having won their last 2 to sit with a record of 4-4 while the Bombers have won five in a row to sit at 7-2.
Winnipeg won last year’s game but prior to that, the Roughriders had won every Labour Day matchup since 2005.
Game time from a sold-out Mosaic Stadium is 2 o’clock. 620 CKRM’s pre-game starts at 11.
