A couple of the numbers from Friday's Rider win at Hamilton are pretty impressive. Saskatchewan out-gained the Tiger-Cats through the air 390 to 248, and bested them in total yardage 500 to 405. And the Riders committed just 5 penalties for 45 yards. It was a good effort by the Green and White and gives them a good jumping off point to start the season. Next Sunday, it's the home opener for the Riders, as they host the 1-0 Edmonton Eskimos, who edged Toronto 19-15 last night. Kickoff is set for 7:00pm EDT.

Saskatchewan Roughriders pleased with stadium progress.
