No snow is forecast, but the high temperature is expected to be nine degrees for today's Grey Cup game for the championship of the Canadian Football League between the Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampeders at Winnipeg. Rickey Foggie will start at quarterback for Toronto in place of injured Matt Dunigan. The Argonauts are slight favorites, probably because of receiver-returner Raghib (Rocket) Ismail.

Raghib (Rocket) Ismail scored on an 87-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter as the Toronto Argonauts beat the Calgary Stampeders, 36-21, Sunday and won their first Grey Cup in eight years. After Calgary closed to 22-21 on Danny Barrett's 18-yard touchdown pass to Allen Pitts at 4:21 of the fourth quarter, Ismail took a squibbed kickoff at his 23-yard line and ran to the end zone untouched.

The up-and-down career of former USC quarterback Sean Salisbury reached a new high Sunday at Ottawa, Canada. Salisbury led the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to an upset victory over the British Columbia Lions, 22-21, in the Grey Cup game, Canadian football's Super Bowl. Salisbury completed only 12 of 32 passes, but that accounted for 246 yards and the Blue Bombers' lone touchdown, which came on a 35-yard pass to James Murphy in the second quarter. The Blue Bombers' Trevor Kennerd kicked 4 field goals.
