Kevin Glenn or Brandon Bridge? That is the big question being asked in Riderville as they prepare for Friday’s game in Hamilton.
Ironically, there is a chance the outcome won’t hang on the quarterback – Saskatchewan will need to run the ball effectively in Hamilton.
Kienan LaFrance will make his second start of the season on the heels of a 49-yard performance a week ago in a loss to Winnipeg. LaFrance averaged just over four yards per carry.
The feature back has to put the offence in second and short on first down carries.
The Rider defence prepares for quarterback Jeremiah Masoli. Masoli hasn’t had record-setting numbers, but with CJ Gable in the back field, he’s done enough to lead the Tiger-Cats to a two-game win streak.
The return of strong side linebacker Otha Foster will be something for Rider fans to key on, as they face a Hamilton offence that is no doubt confident after wins over Toronto and Ottawa.
I’ll take the Riders, based on a solid team effort.
