Quarterback Ricky Ray will need to perform to keep the boo birds at bay, especially with B.C.’s ball-hawking defence. One of the bright spots for the Eskimos this year has been running back Calvin McCarty, so look for him to get plenty of touches of the football.

The Esks defenders will also need to contain B.C.’s Geroy Simon, who continues to defy Father Time with consistency at receiver.
