CROSSOVER

Edmonton, the fourth-place team in the West Division, has more points than Toronto, the third-place team in the East Division, and will therefore, cross over and claim the third playoff spot in the East Division. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which a team has crossed over – a new CFL record.

At 2-1, Edmonton is the only crossover team with a winning record since the rule came into effect in 1996.

Montreal will host Edmonton in the Eastern Semi-final on November 10. The Alouettes are a perfect 3-0 when hosting the crossover team.
