CFL Gameday: Calgary at British Columbia (July 8, 2011)

The BC Lions count down the days until they move back into BC Place, taking to their temporary home of Empire Field tonight against the Calgary Stampeders.

The Stamps will be looking to get things back on track after last weeks loss to the Argos, while the Lions will hope to build on their momentum of an entertaining but losing effort against the Grey Cup champions in Montreal in last weeks season opener.
