HAMILTON - Bo Levi Mitchell threw two TD strikes as the Calgary Stampeders beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 36-17 on Saturday to extend their unbeaten streak to a CFL-record 13 games.

The Stampeders (12-1-1) earned their 11th straight win and played for the first time since the tragic death of defensive back Mylan Hicks. The 23-year-old practice-roster rookie died early Sunday morning in a shooting outside a Calgary nightclub.

There was a moment of silence prior to kickoff in Hicks's memory. Safety Jamal Wall wore Hicks's No. 31 and will for remainder of season while the Stampeders donned a No. 31 sticker on the back of their helmets.

Calgary receiver DaVaris Daniels earmarked the ball he used to score his second TD of the game for Hicks's mother, Renee Hill.

Calgary hasn't lost since dropping a season-opening 20-18 decision in B.C. on June 25. The Stampeders also hold the CFL record for most consecutive wins, 22, registered over the 1948-49 seasons.

Calgary's tie was a 26-26 decision in Ottawa on July 8. Rookie head coach Dave Dickenson earned his 12th win, one short of the league single-season record held jointly by Adam Rita (1991 with Toronto), Calgary president John Hufnagel (2008) and Mike Benevides (2012 with B.C.).

I wonder if Hamilton fans will be calling for the Ti-Cats to move on from Collaros as their guy for him being too injury prone, like a few yahoos once were in Rider Nation with Durant's tragic injuries?

This game was exactly as I predicted to the Oscar Wee Wee who commented that Hamilton was going to beat the Stamps. Hamilton coming off a loss to SK while the Stampeders hung on in an exciting Winnipeg come back. Plus Calgary was playing for a lost Brother in Arms. One team feeling confident with aggressive remorse. While the other team shell shocked from a loss to a 2-10 team at the time. Very easy prediction on this one.

The oscar wee wee fan just spouts off all the time. The wee wees will lose out in their first playoff game. Their coach is the only one with teeth and he only attacks officials
