If they can, the Riders will finish first and host the Western Final November 18.

The Rider's 35-16 victory over the B.C. Lions Saturday means the Regina team will finish either first or second in the division.

It's Roughrider team that seems to be peaking just in time - at least that's what the players themselves are saying - and they'll head into the bye week knowing they've done all they could to seal their own fate: a playoff game at home - either the semi-final or final - for the first time since 2013.

Collaros stayed in and finished the touchdown drive with back-to-back handoffs to Tre Mason, but was sent to the locker room not long after and did not return. Brandon Bridge and David Watford split time under centre for the remainder of the contest.

"That what we told them walking off the field", offensive lineman Tacoby Cofield said with a laugh.

"We threw the ball in the dirt, threw the ball over their (receivers) head, it was just one of those bad nights and (I'm) actually very disappointed".

Lulay threw a 44-yard touchdown to Bryan Burnham in the third quarter for B.C.'s first touchdown. That got them to within seven points with almost an entire half to play, but they could not build on that much-needed momentum swing.

Part 2 underperformed, however, giving both parts an overall take of $46 million. Variety reports that Andy "so hot right now" Muschietti is the chosen director.

The real backbreaker came on a Zack Evans strip sack that resulted in a touchdown and a 25-9 lead heading to the fourth quarter. Lulay was yanked for Jonathon Jennings after the interception.

"That's their recipe for the success and they executed their game plan", said Lulay of the Saskatchewan defence. "Everybody wants the ball and everybody wants to make a play".

They knew they were coming into a buzzsaw and would have to establish some early momentum to take the rowdy Regina crowd out of it. "As a defence, things happen".

"You have to give Saskatchewan and their defence a lot of credit", Lions head coach Wally Buono said.

The game's key sequence came late in the first quarter and raised questions about the CFL's concussion protocol. Two weeks off would be better, particularly if quarterback Zach Collaros needs some recovery time.

During their six-wins-in-seven-games streak, the Lions consistently won the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. "Hey, we're back at it". Tyrell Sutton, who had been a key contributor in the run game, finished with just 50 yards on 12 carries.

The Roughriders' D produced three turnovers, scored a pair of touchdowns and limited the Lions' offence to 71 total yards in the first half.
