Saskatchewan Roughriders want a win in third straight meeting with Calgary Stampeders .
CALGARY — Will the third time be the charm for the Saskatchewan Roughriders? The Roughriders (5-4) face Calgary (5-5) at McMahon Stadium on Saturday in Saskatchewan's third straight meeting with the Stampeders. By a quirk of the CFL schedule, Calgary is the only opponent Saskatchewan has seen so far this month. Calgary surged out of the West Division basement winning three straight in October, including a home-and-home against the Roughriders. The Stampeders edged Saskatchewan 23-17 at McMahon on Oct. 2, followed by an even narrower 22-19 victory at Mosaic Stadium the next week. Calgary is coming off a 39-10 domination of the B.C.
