It was worth the wait.
The Ottawa Redblacks are champions again after winning the 104th Grey Cup in Toronto.
Henry Burris threw three touchdowns, including the game winner in overtime as Ottawa shocked the Calgary Stampeders 39-33.
It is the Redblacks’ first title in franchise history, and Ottawa’s first CFL crown since 1976 when they were the Rough Riders.
Burris was named the MVP and Ottawa receiver Brad Sinopoli won the Top Canadian Award.
Calgary was favoured to win by 10 points after finishing with a 15-2-1 regular-season record.
The Redblacks at 8-9-1 were the first team to finish first in a division with a losing record.
Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, the recently named season’s most outstanding player, threw three interceptions.
