ESKIMOS 40 BLUE BOMBERS 26
White, who got his starting job back this week when Shakir Bell was injured in Wednesday's practice, ran into the end zone from three and five yards out. He also ran a two-point convert late in the game and finished with 19 carries for 104 yards.
The victory evened Edmonton's record to 7-7 and gave the club the three-game season series (2-1) against Winnipeg (8-6).
Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly completed 32-of-38 pass attempts for 355 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Edmonton receivers Adarius Bowman and Derel Walker, who are first and second respectively in the CFL in receiving yardage, caught TD passes. Bowman's was a 15-yard grab and Walker put up a 61-yard catch-and-run followed by White's two-point convert.
Walker had 10 catches for 120 yards and Bowman had 10 grabs for 97 yards.
With the loss, the Bombers failed to clinch at least a crossover playoff berth in the 2016 CFL Playoffs.
