MONTREAL - The Blue Bombers have been the CFLs early surprise, but now quarterback Drew Willy and his high-scoring Winnipeg team will take their show on the road. Jarrod Wilson Jersey . The Bombers (2-0) face the hard-charging Montreal Alouettes (1-1) defence when the teams meet Friday night at Percival Molson Stadium. Catch the game live on TSN starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. Winnipeg opened the season with home wins over Toronto and Ottawa, piling up a league-leading 81 points in two games. They face a team than has allowed fewer than 20 points per game, including last weeks 24-9 win at home over British Columbia. "Theyve had a good defence for a long time," Willy said Thursday. "Theyve got a lot of good veterans. "You can tell theyve played together a long time. This week we were preparing, looking at the different looks theyve given in the last few games and the past few years, so well be ready to go. Im looking forward to going against them." The Alouettes offence has yet to find its stride under new starting quarterback Troy Smith, although he was better against the Lions than in the season opener in Calgary, a 29-8 loss. Smith has yet to pass for more than 200 yards in a game or throw a touchdown pass, but his execution improved and the Alouettes hope the offence takes another step the third time out. Willy has had no such problems so far in his first CFL season as a starter. He played eight games over the past two seasons with Saskatchewan as Darian Durants backup. The 27-year-old was traded to Winnipeg on Feb. 6 for receiver Jade Etienne. In his two games, Willy has passed for 615 yards, second only to Torontos Ricky Ray, and four TDs. He completed two-third of his throws, 40 for 60. Smith has completed only half of his passes, 35 for 70, for 341 yards. The Bombers have also been successful on the ground, where newcomer Nate Grigsby has rushed for 184 yards and three TDs on 35 carries. "Hes made some huge plays for us," said Willy. "Hes been able to get the tough yards we need late in games near the goal-line." Montreals aggressive, ball-hungry defence will be a test, however. Last week, they sacked B.C.s Kevin Glenn five times and caused three turnovers. "Weve just got to play assignment football," said defensive tackle Alan-Michael Cash. "They do have a good running back, but we pride ourselves on stopping the run, so itll be a good match." The defence also produced an early TD for the Alouettes, when defensive lineman Scott Paxson picked off a pass and pitched it to linebacker Chip Cox for an easy jaunt into the end zone. Cox said the challenge will be to slow down a Winnipeg offence that has early-season momentum. "Big plays man, theyre getting a lot of big plays," he said. "If we can eliminate them, I think well be fine." Few expected such a strong start from the Bombers, who went 3-15 last season. Winnipeg has missed the playoffs in four of the last five years, with a 30-60 record over that span. So far, they look to be a better, more disciplined club under new head coach Mike OShea. "Two games, weve been successful twice," cautioned OShea. "The players are doing what the coaches ask of them and the effort is there and theyre doing whats needed to win, so far." Still, the wins have not only given them points, but a much-needed morale boost as well. "Its very important, as I stressed through training camp, that this team tasted winning early, especially the veteran players who had experienced more than their fair share of losing," said OShea. "Theyve got that taste in the mouth now and they like it, so I believe theyll continue to do the things they needed to do to win those two games." They also havent been tested on the road. Home teams went 7-1 in the first two weeks. "Being on the road, from my recollection, can be good," said OShea, a former standout linebacker for Toronto. "You get more time to sit with your teammates and watch film together and talk football because theres not the distractions (of home). Its a business trip." Winnipeg will move Johnny Sears to safety to replace the injured Maurice Leggett. There were fears that receiver Aaron Kelly would sit out, but OShea said hes ready to play. Montreal has safety Mike Edem back from injury, but cornerback Chris Smith is out with a concussion and will be replaced by Dominique Ellis. Authentic Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys .

Heather, the first Gaiter to win the award, set a Canadian Inter-university Sport record with 3,132 passing yards in eight league games, an average of 391.5 yards per game. That beat the mark of 3,047 set only one week earlier by Westerns Will Finch, a Hec Crighton finalist. The previous record of 3,033 was set by Michael Faulds of Western in 2009. "I always knew I could play at a high level and this year was kind of the culmination of my career," said Heather. "I always told my coaches that I dont care if I throw for 200 yards or 50 yards as long as we win the game. "I trade all this if I could play in the (Vanier Cup) game on Saturday." Other Crighton finalists were running backs Mercer Timmis of Calgary and Jordan Botel of Mount Allison. It was the seventh straight year it was won by a quarterback. Kyle Quinlan of McMaster won last year. Heathers heroics helped the Gaiters (6-2) to second place in the Quebec conference -- after going winless the year before -- and gave the Lennoxville, Que., institution its first home playoff game since 1994. He set a conference record with 20 touchdown passes and a team record with 199 completions. His totals included throwing for 538 yards in a 46-38 loss to the Laval Rouge et Or, a record against the defending Vanier Cup champions who had the best defence in Canada. Heather ended his career with Bishops records for completions (565), attempts (998), yards (7,983) and touchdown passes (50). Kevin Mackey of Bishops took home the Frank Tindall Trophy as CIS coach of the year. The 34-year-old engineered a remarkable turnaround for a team that had not won six games in a season since 1993. He had high praise for Heather. "He typified the season we had," said Mackey. "I told him at the beginning of the season that well probably go as far as he takes us. "The expectations were high because we knew what type of player we had, but he surpassed everybodys expectations." Mackey grew up not far from Bishops in Ascot Corner, Que., and became the universitys third Tindall winner after Bruce Coulter and Ian Breck. Other finalists were Kelly Jeffrey of Mount Allison, Greg Marshall of Westernn and Blake Nill of Calgary. A.J. Bouye Jersey. Linebacker Pawel Kruba of No. 1-ranked Western won the Presidents Trophy as defensive player of the year. The fifth-year Mustang averaged 4.8 tackles per game and had three interceptions. "It was a special year and a special team," said Kruba. Other nominees were Doctor Cassama of Calgary, Ron Omara of St. Francis Xavier and Antoine Pruneau of Montreal. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif of McGill got the J.P. Metras Trophy as lineman of the year. The six-foot-five 305-pound senior is the top-ranked player for the 2014 CFL draft. The Redmen line helped Luis Guimont-Mota lead the Quebec conference in rushing yards. Other finalists were Jesse St. James of Acadia, Ettore Lattanzio of Ottawa and Donovan Dale of UBC. "Last year I was first team all-Canadian and this is like taking another step," said Duvernay-Tardif, who is hoping to be invited to the Shrine Bowl to perhaps attract interest from NFL clubs. "My long term goal is medicine, but mid-term is football and Id like to play in the best league in the world." McMaster wide receiver Daniel Vandervoort won the Peter Gorman Trophy as rookie of the year. The Barrie, Ont., native was third in the Ontario conference with 31 catches for 594 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games. He beat out Alex Cormier-Emond of Montreal, Adam Melanson of Acadia and Rashaun Simonise of Calgary. "Coming in this year I never thought Id win this award," said Vandervoort, who may have got more playing time because of a rash of injuries on the Marauders this season. "We had huge losses. "But we tried to battle through it. We had to bring up first and second year players like myself to step up in big games." Calgary quarterback Andrew Buckley took the Russ Jackson Award for football, academics and citizenship. Buckley took over from injured starter Eric Dzwilewski and led the Dinos to an 8-0 record. He is also a two-time academic all-Canadian who hopes to follow his parents into a career in medicine. Duvernay-Tardif, Stu Moore of Mount Allison and Aaaron Gazendam of Queens were finalists. Buckley was the only player from the Dinos or the Rouge et Or, who will meet Saturday in the Vanier Cup game, to win an award. However, the Dinos, the Rouge et Or and Western -- the three top-ranked teams -- each placed four players on the all-star team.
