Hamilton at Winnipeg (Drew Willy) - 8:30 pm

Drew Willy enters his second season as the teams starting quarterback and expectations are a bit higher this year after a decent first season.

Drew Willy feeling more comfortable in second year with Bombers - The Globe and Mail
The Bombers finished last year with a 7-10 record. Willy completed 63.8 per cent of his passes for 3,769 yards (third most in the league) and threw 14 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

To help keep him more upright and focused this season, the club has overhauled its offensive line with the signings of veterans such as centre Dominic Picard and tackle Stanley Bryant.

Last week Willy only lasted two drives before hitting the pine and finished 3-for-3 for 29 yards

Calgary at Saskatchewan (Naaman Roosevelt) - 9:30 pm

Welcome to the CFL Mr. Roosevelt!

After being a journeyman receiver in the NFL Roosevelt gets his CFL start with the team that brought Drew Willy into the league. He made the adjustment to Canadian rules this spring and became a solid player in camp. In his first game action he caught 2 passes for 17 yards.

Roosevelt also hauled in a bomb on which he was flagged for interference.

Not in action this week Ernest Jackson and Jake Silas (Ottawa)
