Stampeders QB Bo Levi Mitchell named CFL's outstanding player

Ottawa RedBlacks receiver Ernest Jackson was the other finalist.

The fact that Sunday's CFL championship game at Toronto's BMO Field has not yet sold out has been a talking point, and the optics of the Pizza Pizza special didn't help the city's reputation as lukewarm toward Canada's professional football league.

Ottawa (8-9-1) finished atop the East Division for the second straight year under Campbell, who's in his third season as the Redblacks head coach.

Mitchell guided Calgary to a 20-16 victory over Hamilton in 2014.
