104th Grey Cup: Ottawa Takes the Title

[lead align=”default”]The Ottawa Redblacks are the 104th Grey Cup champions after their overtime victory on Sunday night.[/lead]

Ottawa, in only their third season of existence, beat the heavily favored Calgary Stampeders to take their first league championship. The Redblacks went 8-9-1 through the regular season while Calgary was 15-2-1. Ottawa was also a 9.5-point underdog.

The Redblacks are the first Grey Cup winner since 2012 not to have a winning record, and the first since 2001 to have a losing record. They had to stave off a furious comeback from the Stamps to get that win. Calgary forced overtime with a big rally, capped off by a late game-tying field goal, but Ottawa got it done in overtime.

Ottawa had not won a Grey Cup in 40 years, among the franchises that resided in the city.
