REDBLACKS 23 BLUE BOMBERS 10

Canadian Press/John Wood
WINNIPEG - Henry Burris passed for 338 yards and ran in one touchdown as the Ottawa Redblacks clinched first place in the CFL East Division Saturday with a 23-10 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Redblacks running back Mossis Madu had 21 carries for 125 yards and one touchdown to help boost Ottawa's record to 8-8-1.

It's the second straight East Division title for Ottawa, which gives the Redblacks a bye to the East final and home-field advantage for that game.

Winnipeg had been coming off a bye week with two straight victories, but sits at 10-7 with its playoff positioning still unclear.

The teams wrap up the regular-season next Friday with Winnipeg visiting Ottawa.

Burris completed 23-of-33 pass attempts with one interception and no touchdowns in front of 26,097 fans at Investors Group Field.
