Toronto Argonauts' quarterback Zach Collaros completed 25 of 36 passes for 330 yards and four touchdown passes as Toronto defeated Calgary 33-27. The last Stampeders home loss ironically came last season to Toronto as the Argonauts defeated the Stampeders 22-14.
Saturday's game was a battle between the best team in the Canadian Football League's Western Division against the best team in the Canadian Football League's Eastern Division. The Stampeders entered the contest with a record of 9-2, while the Argonauts were 7-4.
Calgary now at 9-3, has a two point lead on the Saskatchewan Roughriders at 8-3, while the Argonauts lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-6) by four points. The Roughriders host the British Columbia Lions Sunday afternoon at Mosaic Stadium in Regina.
The Stampeders had their chances to beat the Argonauts. Late in the fourth quarter with Calgary down 32-26, Stampeders wide receiver Brad Sinopoli had a 57 yard touchdown catch from Kevin Glenn, but the play was called back because of pass interference by teammate Jabari Arthur. Then on the second last play of the game, Anthony Parker caught a hail mary pass from Bo Levi Mitchell, but the officials ruled he was out of bounds.
Prior to the game, the Stampeders paid tribute to former owner Sig Gutsche who passed away on September 14 of a heart attack at age 63.
