The matchup pitted Cats QB Jeremiah Masoli against Stampeders quarterback Nick Arbuckle.

Neither will start for their respective teams on Saturday, as Masoli is out for the season with a torn ACL, while Arbuckle has taken a back seat to stater Bo Levi Mitchell, who missed their first meeting with a pectoral injury.

Entering Week 14 of the CFL season, the Tiger-Cats have a six-point cushion over the Montreal Alouettes, who visit the Roughriders Saturday night.

Calgary is tied for second place in the West Division with Saskatchewan, four points behind the idle Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
