HAMILTON - Saskatchewan will have a new quarterback but Orlondo Steinauer is expecting the same old Roughriders. The Riders will face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday afternoon without veteran Darian Durant under centre. He suffered a season-ending elbow injury in last weekends 30-24 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, meaning backup Tino Sunseri will start at Tim Hortons Field. Catch the game on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 starting at 1pm et/10am pt. The loss of a starting quarterback can be catastrophic to an offence but Saskatchewan boasts the CFLs top rushing attack (150.6 yards per game). And thats exactly what Steinauer, Hamiltons defensive co-ordinator, is preparing his unit to face. "Theyre going to be who they are," he said. "Theyre going to come out and establish the run. "Theyre going to take their shots to the end zone. Theyre not a conservative passing-game team. Theyre going to attack us and theyre going to do what they do. What they have going for them is theyre (the defending Grey Cup) champions, right? They have enough people in that locker room that have won where Im sure theyre just looking at this as a small obstacle." Sunseri has seen limited action this year, completing 13-of-25 passes for 152 yards and a TD. Durant led the Riders to their season-opening 31-10 win over Hamilton in a rematch of the 2013 Grey Cup game, which saw the Riders beat the Ticats 45-23 at Mosaic Stadium on Nov. 24. But Hamilton has more to worry about than the absence of Durant. Ticats starter Zach Collaros was sacked 10 times in the season opener while Saskatchewan running back Anthony Allen ran for 158 yards and scored two TDs (one rush, one catch) in that game. "We made a lot of changes up front (offensively) and were playing pretty well up front," Hamilton head coach Kent Austin said when asked about the season opener. "I think for the most part weve shored that situation up." Collaros suffered a concussion in Hamiltons second game of the season, a 28-24 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos on July 4 that forced him to miss five contests. But Collaros feels hes come a long way since the first meeting with Saskatchewan. "I think overall Ive got a better understanding (of the offence) and I know for myself I feel more comfortable," said Collaros, who will play just his third game since his return. "Im able to react a little more because Im not thinking as much . . . I think weve gotten better as a unit." Saskatchewan (8-2) has won seven straight to stand second in the West Division behind the Calgary Stampeders (9-1). Hamilton (2-7) is third in the East Division, just two points behind the Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes. A second-place finish is imperative in the East as its very likely the fourth-place finisher in the West will cross over and secure the third and final Eastern playoff spot. Hamilton surrendered 31 second-half points last weekend en route to a 38-31 road loss in Montreal. Austin said time of possession will be key against the Roughriders. "Theyre going to try to control the line of scrimmage," said Austin. "Get our offence off the field and then try to wear you down with their offence . . . Its not just their offence running the football effectively (that wears down a team). "Its their defence getting offences off the field so theres fewer possessions. What happens is your defence gets worn out over the course of the game and it starts to show up later in the game. So weve got to do a good job offensively of staying on the football field." With Durant injured the Riders signed Keith Price, a former University of Washington star who was released by the NFLs Seattle Seahawks. The football community in Hamilton is mourning the loss of Paul Weiler, who served as Pigskin Pete from 1976 to 2006. He died Wednesday at the age of 80. Weiler never got to see the Ticats play at their new stadium but missed only one game during his tenure leading the Ticats faithful into their traditional "Oskee-Wee-Wee" chant.

Lipscomb, a program that competes in the Atlantic Sun Conference, is a game under .500 after losing five of six during one stretch. However, the team has won back-to-back contests, the latest of which was a 68-59 final versus Austin Peay on the road over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Longhorns are one of the top teams in the nation thanks to a seven-game win streak to open up the 2014-15 campaign. However, that successful run came to an end in the first game of this month as the team folded against top-ranked Kentucky (63-51) during the Big 12/SEC Challenge in Lexington. The good news for Texas is that the team has already bounced back by destroying Texas State on Saturday in the first game of a five-game homestand, by a score of 59-27. The defensive effort marked the first time since 1948 that the Longhorns managed to hold an opponent to less than 30 points. As far as the all-time series between the teams is concerned, this is the first meeting. Against Austin Peay, Brett Wishon came off the bench to convert 7-of-12 shots from behind the 3-point line, en route to a team-best 21 points in the nine- point road victory. Also scoring in double figures for the Bison were Malcolm Smith and Josh Williams with 11 and 10 points, respectively, combining for 11 of the units 35 rebounds and six of their nine steals as well. Lipscomb made it into the win column despite turning the ball over 16 times and shootingg only 8-of-27 (.dddddddddddd296) beyond the arc. As the only player to have started all nine games for the Bison, it only makes sense that Williams is also the leading scorer with his 15.2 ppg, while his 5.8 rpg also top the charts. Malcolm Smith and Martin Smith pitch in with 12.7 and 11.9 ppg, respectively, the former also hitting the glass for more than five per game in order to keep the Bison within a rebound of opponents on the average every time out. In one of the most impressive outings in the last half-century, the Longhorns showed no mercy against their in-state rival, Texas State, as they limited the Bobcats to a mere 11 field goals on 51 attempts (.216) and watched the visitors convert only 2-of-12 tries from beyond the arc and 3-of-10 at the free-throw line. Texas also pummeled TSU on the glass, 45-21, thanks to the efforts of Connor Lammert who cleared 10 rebounds. In the scoring column, Texas was paced by Cameron Ridley who tallied 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, followed by Javan Felix off the bench with 10 points as the team connected on 54.8 percent from the floor and survived 19 turnovers. If not for all the miscues, theres no telling how lopsided the outcome could have been. Thanks to the effort against Texas State, the Horns have lowered their points allowed on the season to just 50.9 ppg, which gives them a scoring advantage of close to 18 ppg at the moment. Among the active leading scorers for Texas are Jonathan Holmes and Myles Turner with 11.8 and 11.0 ppg, respectively, the pair also combining for more than 14 rebounds per game.
