The University of Regina Rams will play at least one more game in the old Mosaic Stadium.
The Rams clinched a home playoff game with an exciting 35-33 win over UBC on home turf.
The game was a nail biter as the Thunderbirds scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to cut the Rams lead to two. The Rams recovered the short kick and ran out the clock to improve to 5-2 on the season.
It was also a historic night for the Rams as both quarterback Noah Picton and his cousin receiver Mitch Picton broke some records.
Late in the game Noah hit Mitch for a massive 70-yard touchdown to make the game 35-26. The catch was Picton’s 56th on the season which set a U of R record. The touchdown also moved Picton into a tie with Jason Clermont for the school record of 11 receiving touchdowns in a season.
Earlier in the night it was Noah Picton who broke a Canada West record for completions in a season (183), breaking former Ram Marc Mueller and University of Saskatchewan’s Drew Burko’s record.
Picton finished the night with four touchdown passes and 329 yards, which also broke a team record as he passed Teale Orban for most passing yards in a season. Picton now sits with 2727-yards passing with a game to go. Mitch Picton led Regina with six catches, 134-yards and two touchdowns. Running back Atlee Simon also had an impressive night with 160-yards of total offense and one touchdown receiving and one rushing.
The Rams will finish their regular season on the road next week in Manitoba before returning home to host the Canada West Semi-Final on November 5th.
