A Bad Stop. Calgary has not historically been a good spot for the Roughriders as they’re 37-77-5 all time when playing in Calgary

Nothing on the Line. This is the first time since the 1996 season that all of the CFL playoff matchups were decided before the final week of the season.

—  Lots of Work for a Road Trip. With a win, the Stampeders would become the second club in CFL history to win 12 games in a season, and not claim second place in their division. Edmonton won 12 games in 2017 and finished third.

 Second Season Streak. For the 17 consecutive season, the Stampeders have made the postseason which ties them for the fourth longest streak.

Protection. Big difference in sacks allowed between the two clubs, Calgary has allowed 15 sacks all season, while Saskatchewan has allowed 71 this season

Record Breaker. Riders Darnell Sankey leads the CFL with 115 tackles and is three away from breaking the Riders all time record.

Young Canadian Star. Kian Schaffer-Baker is 65 yards from the 1,000. He would become the youngest Canadian receiver to accomplish that feat for Saskatchewan.

Missing Duke. The Roughriders have gone 2-7 in Duke Williams absence. They were 4-4 before he was sidelined with an ankle injury.

Special Teams Wonder. In 2022, there have been five onside kick recoveries. The Roughriders and the Stampeders are responsible for four of them this season.

Stamps on a Roll. Calgary has won five of the last six meetings between the two teams.
