WINNIPEG – Quarterbacks Matt Nichols and Johnny Manziel have a lot to prove tonight.
Nichols wants to help end the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ four-game losing skid with a victory over Manziel and his Montreal Alouettes, and ensure he doesn’t get pulled at halftime like he did in a 32-27 loss to Saskatchewan on Sept. 8.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have reduced the prices on some stadium concessions and parking for the remainder of the season.
Based on fan feedback, the Bombers have introduced a new $3 menu featuring hot dogs, perogies, spring rolls and a vegetarian chili bowl, and bottled water for $3 including taxes. The lower prices also extend to hot chocolate, coffee, and 12 oz fountain pop for $2.50.
CALGARY – The Calgary Stampeders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers find themselves in similar situations heading into Saturday afternoon’s game between the West Division foes at McMahon Stadium.
Both teams are looking for bounce-back efforts from tough Week 10 losses. The Bombers (5-4) dropped a 44-21 decision to the Ottawa Redblacks at home on Friday, while the Stampeders (7-1) lost 40-27 to the Saskatchewan Roughriders two nights later in Regina.
