CFL Gameday: British Columbia at Edmonton (July 16, 2011)

One team remains undefeated, the other seeks out its first win of the season, and Saturday evening in Edmonton, either the Eskimos are going to add on to the miserable start to the season for the BC Lions or suffer their first setback of the year.

The Lions who have remained close in their first two games of the year, haven't been able to close the deal a frustrating thing no doubt for Lions head coach Wally Buono, who has watched miscues and missed opportunities keep his team out of the win column so far this year.

The Lions coach and GM brings his team into Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday to face an increasingly confident Eskimo squad, which with two convincing wins into the young CFL season, are showing that they were serious when they said that they intend to be more than just competitive this year.
