The Alberta Golden Bears host the Regina Rams on Friday night. The Rams are coming off a double overtime loss on the road losing to Manitoba 24-27. Alberta tied their most points scored in a game so far this season but it was not enough to come with the win as they lost 37-54 last week to UBC.

Regina Rams (1-3): The Regina Rams won their first game in week 3 by a score of 23-15 over the Calgary Dinos before losing in double overtime last week. They were the only team to limit UBC to under 40 points scored in a game so far which they did in week 1 when they lost 10-25 to UBC.

Golden Bears to Watch
QB Eli Hetlinger

RB Matthew Peterson
Peterson was a beast last week rushing 14 times for 192 yards (13.7 average) and a touchdown. His longest run was a 95-yard explosion. He proved extremely difficult to bring down again last week and is leading the conference in rushing yards with 640 rushing yards in 4 games.

WR Kolby Hurford

HB Charlie De Land
De Land had 4 solo tackles and an assisted tackle last week. He had 3 stops against pass plays and shared a run stop.
K/S Jonathan Giustini
Giustini is a safety and a kicker. He had 7 solo tackles and 2 assisted tackles last week. He had a run stop and a stop against a pass play. Giustini made 2 of his 3 field goals with the longest being from 43 yards. The missed field goal was a 54 yarder that looked like it may have made it from 50.
Regina is better than their record would suggest but with how well Alberta is running the football I don’t see them losing this game. I predict Alberta to win 37-21.
