Redblacks kick off 2017 playoffs against Riders

OTTAWA — The Redblacks will host Saskatchewan in the CFL’s Eastern Conference Semi-final.

Ottawa was bumped down to second seed in the East after the Toronto Argonauts beat BC 40-13 Saturday night.

The Redblacks split their two-game season series with the Roughriders — each game being decided by just one point.

Ottawa lost 18-17 at home to the Riders in week 15 of the season.

The Redblacks then returned the favour in Regina, topping Saskatchewan 33-32 thanks to a last second touchdown run by Ryan Lindley.

Kick-off is set for 1pm, November 12 at TD Place.
