The Eskimos and Stampeders face each on Monday in the Labour Day Classic. The Eskimos will be looking for their fourth straight win after a 2-4 start. The Stampeders have the best record in the CFL at 7-1-1 and have won six straight games and are unbeaten in their last eight games.
Head coach Jason Maas says the Stampeders will be a good measuring stick but feels his team will be a good test for the Stampeders.
The Eskimos right now are tied for third place in the Western Division with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers who play the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday in their Labour Day weekend classic.
Running back John White took first team reps again Friday at practice and looks good to return from a one-game absence. Linebacker J.C. Sherritt missed practice to rest some nagging bumps and bruises, he’s expected to play on Monday.
Kick-off Monday from McMahon Stadium in Calgary is 1pm, 630 CHED will have the pre-game show at 11:30am.
