REDBLACKS 27 BLUE BOMBERS 20
Burris orchestrated an 11-play, 70-yard touchdown drive in the dying moments of the fourth quarter, capped off by his one-yard scamper on a third-and-goal play.
Burris needed eight yards to pass 60,000 for his career heading into the game. The Redblacks QB completed his first pass attempt for 15 yards to join Anthony Calvillo and Damon Allen as the only three to accomplish the feat.
The victory represented the first time the Redblacks (10-6) reached double digits in the win column since 1978. They've also won six of their last eight games.
With only one game remaining, the Bombers' (5-12) playoff chances took a hit with the loss.
At one point midway through the second quarter, there were more turnovers than points in the game.
