With Winnipeg ahead by seven points late in the fourth quarter and the Alouettes threatening, Bighill intercepted Trevor Harris’s overthrown ball intended for Quan Bray. The turnover led to a Sergio Castillo field goal, which made it a two-possession game for the home side with under two minutes to play.

In his ninth CFL season, the former Central Washington Wildcat has 65 tackles, two sacks, a pair of interceptions and a touchdown.
