Quarterback Trevor Harris had a solid outing, throwing two touchdowns over 345 yards to lead as Ottawa Redblacks opened their regular season with a 40-17 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Thursday night at TD Place.
Harris went 26 for 36 and also threw an interception for Ottawa (1-0).
Things didn’t go so well for the Roughriders (1-1), who lost starting quarterback Zach Collaros in the second quarter.
Collaros, who was sacked in the first quarter, completed four of 10 passes for 106 yards, one touchdown and one interception, in his brief appearance.
Brandon Bridge stepped in to replace Collaros and struggled, going 13 for 22 for 145 yards with one interception.
