The Saskatchewan Roughriders have made it back to the Grey Cup next Sunday in Edmonton.

However, the Roughriders know they’ll be constantly reminded of the 2009 heartbreak over the next few days, but they’re happy to be in a position to talk about it.

The Roughriders upset the Calgary Stampeders 20-16 in a frigid West final Sunday at McMahon Stadium in Cowtown. The Riders meet the Montreal Alouettes at the 98th Grey Cup game.

The Als earned a third straight trip to the Cup with a 48-17 win over the Toronto Argonauts in the East final Sunday.

Saskatchewan is going back to the CFL championship game to try and exorcise the ghosts of last year’s debacle.

Leading 27-25 in the final minute in Calgary, the Roughriders began celebrating a title when Alouettes kicker Damon Duval missed a 43-yard field goal attempt with no time remaining.

But Saskatchewan was called for too many men on the field on that kick and Duval made good on his second chance from 33 yards for the 28-27 victory.

The game is set for 3 p.m., PST on TSN (The Sports Network.)
