EDMONTON -- The Calgary Stampeders likely wish that they still had a few more games left against the Edmonton Eskimos this season. Stitched Football Jerseys Throwback . Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell rushed for two touchdowns and passed for two more as the Stampeders continued their dominance over their provincial rival, winning their fifth game in a row with a 41-34 victory in the Labour Day rematch on Saturday. It was the 11th consecutive win over the Eskimos dating back to 2011 for the Stampeders, who improved to 9-1 and padded their lead atop the West Division. Calgary running back Jon Cornish said he has no specific answer as to why his team has owned the Eskimos in recent years. "We just get fired up for these games against them," Cornish said. "I wouldnt say that we have some innate advantage over them. We just get fired up and we understand how much these games mean to the inhabitants of Alberta, especially in Calgary. It means a lot to win this series. "Edmonton is going to be a good team and we are going to have a lot of struggles with them. It means a lot to have these three wins and put some space between us and them." With the win, Mitchell became the first quarterback to have a 12-1 start to his CFL career, leaping past former Eskimo Jackie Parker (1954-55) and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jim Van Pelt (1958-59), who both lost their 13th games to go 11-2. "Were 9-1 and in first place, thats all I care about," Mitchell said. "Ive been blessed to have a good team around me. Obviously I am glad about the record, although I dont think it is something people are going to be talking about in a couple of years." Calgary coach John Hufnagel said Mitchell deserved his fair share of praise for the win. "I thought he was outstanding," he said. "It wasnt all smooth sailing, but a trademark of Bo is that he is going to go out there the next series and do the best he can. I thought he saw the field very well and took great care of the football. He had some big throws and allowed us to do the things we needed to do to win." It was the second straight loss for the Eskimos, who fell to 7-3 on the season. All three of their losses this season have come to Calgary. "We dont care about the last couple seasons, we care about this season and we feel like weve done some things to hand these games over to them," said Eskimos quarterback Matt Nichols. "Obviously, theyre a great football team, we give them a ton of credit, but whether its a bad snap or a penalty here or there, theyre just the difference in the game." Added Edmonton coach Chris Jones: "Its disappointing. The one good thing is we didnt ever quit, it didnt look like we ever stopped playing. We took it to the wire and, again, just came up a little short. Weve certainly got a lot of things to work on in all three phases." Calgary took a 3-0 lead just past the mid mark of the first quarter on a 41-yard Rene Paredes field goal that came on the heels of a high snap on a third-and-three gamble at midfield by the Eskimos. Edmontons offence finally woke up from a tepid start to put the Eskimos in front 7-3 with eight minutes remaining in the second quarter as long passes to A.J. Guyton and Adarius Bowman set up a 26-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Nichols to Guyton. Calgary responded just a few minutes later as a face-masking penalty put the Stampeders in range for a 30-yard TD pass from Mitchell to Simon Charbonneau. The Stamps took a 17-7 lead with two-and-a-half minutes left in the opening half as a 38-yard passing play to Marquay McDaniel set up a one-yard quarterback keeper into the end zone by Mitchell. The Eskimos countered with a 25-yard Hugh ONeill field goal as time expired to make it 17-10 at the half. Calgarys defence came up big to start the third quarter as it knocked the ball out of Nichols hands four minutes in. Corey Mace recovered on the Edmonton 10, setting up a TD pass to McDaniel on the next play. McDaniel factored in on another touchdown with five minutes left in the third as his 32-yard catch led immediately to a 20-yard TD run by Mitchell, who danced across the goal-line to put the Stampeders ahead 31-10. Edmonton went to its bag of tricks to try and get back into the contest to start the fourth quarter as Guyton took a handoff before then completing a 32-yard pass to Fred Stamps. However, the Eskimos then took a procedure call on a third-and-one gamble on the Calgary eight and were forced to accept an ONeill field goal. The Stampeders responded with a 35-yard Paredes field goal with seven minutes left in the game. The Eskimos finally found their way back into the end zone with just under five minutes to play as Nichols hit Bowman for a 21-yard strike. The play seemed to give them some new life as they came right back with a 38-yard pass to Stamps, leading straight to a two-yard TD run by Nichols to make it 34-27 with 2:34 left on the clock. Calgary quickly put thoughts of a comeback out the picture, though, as Mitchell found McDaniel on a 43-yard passing play, eventually setting the stage for a 10-yard Cornish touchdown run. Edmonton closed to within a touchdown again with 21 seconds left to play as Nichols hit Nate Coehoorn for a 24-yard major. A short kick attempt was recovered by the Stampeders, allowing them to run out the clock. The Eskimos remain at home to face the Montreal Alouettes next Friday, while the Stampeders return to Calgary to host Toronto next Saturday. Custom Football Jerseys Throwback . 3.

What are the proposed changes?Basically, the tournament will start with a knockout competition instead of the group stage. So 32 teams entering the tournament will start with a two-legged tie, which will act as a play-off for a place in the new mini-league. And what is this mini-league?The last 16 teams remaining will be separated into two leagues of eight. Each team will play each other home and away, so each team will play 14 games.What does this mean for the bigger clubs?Traditional Champions League contenders from Europes big leagues will be delighted if this proposal is accepted. It will mean seven guaranteed home games potentially against fellow sides from Europes Big 5 leagues. That will result in increased ticket revenue and more people watching on TV around the world. Manchester Uniteds Wayne Rooney holds up the Champions League trophy Is TV the big reason for the change?Theres no doubting international TV markets have a huge impact on the clubs. Teams in Europe are concerned about trying to compete with Premier League teams when their new TV deal kicks in next season - this will help soften the blow. A mini-league format should mean more games involving the bigger clubs week-in, week-out, which means the next Champions League TV deal will be easier to sell to markets around the world.So bad news for the smaller clubs then?On the face of it, the chances of an extended European campaign for clubs outside the Big 5 leagues look diminished. However, romantics will point out that a win over two legs in the first round could guarantee 14 matches against some of Europes biggest teams. The problem there is we still dont know when teams from various countries will enter the competition. Also, a re-jigged, larger team-friendly tournament will be easier for UEFA to sell to foreign TV markets. That means more money for all of the clubs taking part, so the smaller teams could come out of this richer too. Pep Guardiola kisses the trophy after Barcelonas victory Im confused. Sale Football Jerseys Throwback. So its a good thing for them then?In purely footballing terms, probably not. One thing that isnt apparent is how many rounds teams will have to go through until they reach the new group stage. That may depend on UEFAs complicated coefficient system but some sides will inevitably have to play multiple two-legged ties before qualifying for the group stage. Another element that is up for debate is exactly when the top teams will enter the competition. Bigger clubs will always want as much protection as possible and will push to enter the tournament as late as possible.So is this to combat talk of a European Super League?Yes and no. Big clubs want to play each other more often in order to maximise revenue and gain maximum exposure. But there are many critics of the current Champions League format, with the current eight groups of four teams system often leading to obvious results as top seeds tend to play one or two smaller teams every year. The hope is that this would make the tournament more exciting by placing more evenly matched teams against each other on a regular basis and by increasing the number of knock-out games early on. CL changes discussed UEFA is in talks with clubs to change the format of the Champions League So when could we see change?No changes to the competition can take place before the 2018-19 season, when the current international TV deals expire. The bidding process for the next set of contracts start at the end of the year, so UEFA will want this matter agreed by then with September a date mooted.
