The Edmonton Eskimos are heading east.
With Winnipeg beating Ottawa 33-20 Friday night, the Eskimos will finish fourth in the West Division regardless of how they do Saturday against Toronto. That means the Esks will crossover to the East Division for the playoffs.
Edmonton will play at Hamilton on Sunday, November 13, in the East Semi-Final.
The two teams split their regular season games. On July 23 in Edmonton, the Eskimos suffered one of the worst losses in team history. They were up 31-6 early in the second half but wound up losing 37-31. On October 28 in Hamilton, the Eskimos won 29-26.
This will be only the third playoff meeting between the two clubs. Edmonton beat Hamilton in the 1980 Grey Cup while the Tiger-Cats had the edge in the 1986 Grey Cup. (jrw)
