Calgary and Ottawa will face each other in the Grey Cup for the first time in 48 years when they meet Sunday night at BMO Field in Toronto.
Known as the Rough Riders at the time, Ottawa beat the Stampeders 24-21 in the 1968 CFL final.
The Stamps beat Ottawa in the 1948 championship game 12-7.
And for the first time in CFL history, today’s final is the first in which two previous Grey Cup MVP award winning quarterbacks will square off.
Calgary’s Bo Levi Mitchell won the award in the 2014 title game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Redblacks QB Henry Burris was the MVP of the 2008 CFL final when he was with the Stamps.
The West Division winners are favoured to win their second Grey Cup in three years and eighth overall.
Ottawa lost in last year’s final against the Edmonton Eskimos and have not won the Grey Cup since 1976.
