HAMILTON - Bo Levi Mitchell threw two TD passes as Calgary beat the Toronto Argonauts 27-15 on Saturday at Tim Hortons Field, earning Stampeders head coach/GM John Hufnagel his 100th career regular-season win.

Hufnagel, who'll hand head-coaching duties to offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson at season's end, improved to 100-41-1. Calgary (12-4) moved atop the West Division ahead of Edmonton (11-4), which hosted the B.C. Lions (5-9) later Saturday.

Mitchell cemented the victory with a 14-yard TD strike to Tory Harrison at 5:38 of the fourth quarter, giving Calgary a 27-10 lead. The Stampeders dropped a 15-11 home loss to Edmonton last weekend but have gone a CFL-record 67 regular-season games without consecutive losses.

Calgary also went 2-0 this season versus Toronto, downing the Argos 25-20 at McMahon Stadium in July.

Just 3,401 spectators took in the game, braving cool, windy conditions. And they all sat in the east stands as the west side - where the TV cameras shot the action - was closed.

The contest was played here due to scheduling issues at Rogers Centre with the Toronto Blue Jays in the baseball playoffs. The Argos return to Tim Hortons Field on Friday to face the Montreal Alouettes again because of the baseball post-season.
