CFL Gameday: Hamilton at Calgary (Saturday, August 6, 2011)

The wrap up game of week six brings two teams that had big expectations for 2011 but struggled out of the gate, however both Calgary and Hamilton seem to have righted their ships heading into week six, though the Tiger Cats would appear to have the edge when it comes to confidence over the last few weeks.

The Stamps will try to get their offence untracked against the always dominant Tiger Cat defence, while the Cats offence has become so focused on the task at hand that they felt that mercurial receiver Arland Bruce III was expendable, sending him off to the BC Lions earlier this week.

Saturday's match up should provide a good measuring point for both teams, if the Cats can continue on with their winning ways then a run for first in the east is not out of the question, while Calgary needs a win desperately to keep within striking distance of the league leading Eskimos.
