August 28, 2013, Vancouver, BC (ISN) – The BC Lions (5-3) host the resurgent Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4-4) on Friday, August 30 at 7:00 pm presented by Nissan. Local television blackout in effect.

The Lions look to bounce back from a tough 39-38 loss in Montreal last week and face a Hamilton side led by veteran quarterback Henry Burris who’s led the Black and Gold to victories in their last three games.

The Leos currently hold down third place in the ultra-competitive West Division, but need a win in order to keep both Calgary and Saskatchewan in their sights.

Lions quarterback Travis Lulay and his teammates have established an amazing regular season home record of 16-1 since returning to BC Place mid-way through the 2011 campaign and he’ll be eager to turn things around on the stadium’s fast track on Friday night.

Local celebrity chef Vikram Vij will be visiting the media lounge pregame where Centerplate will be serving up some of his amazing curry dishes. He will also be greeting fans at the Vij’s stand located at section 246 to hand out samples prior to kickoff.
