Nichols was named one of the league’s weekly top performers only days ago, and Bighill was recently selected for a team award with the Bombers.

Nichols was recognized for his strongest performance of the season against the Calgary Stampeders, putting him in sixth place all-time for passing yards in Bombers history.
