For the second time this season, and the fifth time in his career, Harris threw for over 400 yards in a game.
He reached 420 yards last Friday night in a 41-26 win over the Argonauts in Toronto and also had a hand in all five of the team’s touchdowns, throwing three and rushing for two.
Harris leads the league in passing yards with 3.051 and is on pace to set a new Eskimos team record. He can also become just the fifth QB in CFL history to eclipse the 6,000 yard mark.
The Waldo, Ohio native is in his eighth CFL season — the first with Edmonton.
The 33-year-old has thrown only two interceptions all season while leading the Eskimos to a 6-3 record and second place in the CFL West at the half-way mark of the season.
