Rematches rule the schedule for the weekend, as last weeks combatants take to the field once again.
In one of those strange scheduling quirks that seem to be the domain of the CFL, the Stamps and Esks who played the final game of Labour Day weekend on Monday, will be the first out of the gate on Friday night.
A scheduling decision that baffles, but here we are, two teams that may still be patching up the cuts and tending to the bruises, ready to tape up and head back out on the field, with but three days in between.
The rest of the weekend features the Tiger Cats heading into Montreal to show that their Labour Day smack down could soon be a trend, the Lions will host their corporate partners the Argos complete with their latest quarterback Steven Jyles ready to go out and try to deliver the Argos from their football purgatory.
And of course, the weekend ends with the Banjo Bowl, a game which follows last weeks rather intense Labour Day Classic in Regina, a mid scale war that seems to have left no shortage of unfinished business for the two teams to tend to on Sunday.
When the results are counted by Sunday night, we'll have a pretty good idea as to whether the swagger is fading in Winnipeg, if the Esks are rising once again, the Lions returning to the hunt or the Argos finding life and whether the Alouettes are indeed into the sunset days of this group and the Ticats on the rise.
