The Saskatchewan Roughriders romped in the Canadian Football League’s title game on Sunday evening, beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 45-23 in the 101st Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Roughriders running back Kory Sheets, who had NFL stints with the 49ers, Dolphins and Panthers, earned game MVP honors after rushing for a Grey Cup-record 197 yards. Sheets rushed for a pair of scores, and quarterback Darian Durant threw three TDs for Saskatchewan, which played the title game in its home stadium.

On defense, the Roughriders got a productive game from defensive end John Chick, who notched two sacks. Chick played with the Jaguars a season ago.

Ticats quarterback Henry Burris, the former Bears and Packers passer, threw for 272 yards for Hamilton. He rushed for an 18-yard touchdown.
