Well, I’m sure many of are already looking ahead to next season with the way things are playing out. With one game left, the Green and White will look to make some staffing changes in the off-season to prepare for next year. The Riders will look to close out the season on a high note with the final game in Montreal.

Just a reminder, the final 10 bonus points for the Battle of the Regions will be awarded once the Grey Cup matchup is decided.

Insightrix Research Inc.’s Rider Tracker, a poll that asks a random selection of fans on the SaskWatch Research™ online panel their opinions of the Riders’ performance and predictions for the rest of the season, is treating the 2015 season as a battle between Saskatchewan regions!

Every week, 200 fans from across the province complete a survey before each game is played and each region (Regina, Saskatoon, North, and South) will accumulate points for having the closest predictions to actual Rider game stats. At the end of the season, Insightrix will donate $1,000 on behalf of the winning region to a charity chosen by popular vote.

Watch for your region’s score and other stats, posted early in the week following each Rider game.

Predictions & Actual Score
