VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Baltimore's Jearld Baylis has traveled this road before.

Ham said he likes the mental attitude the CFLs' young players bring to the game.

"These young guys have stood up all year," Ham said. "They're not rookies any more. [Matt] Goodwin has made play after play.

"It's amazing how confident these young guys are. They didn't know about the history in Winnipeg, how hard it is to win [there]."


The last team to win the Grey Cup on its home field was Montreal in 1977, beating Edmonton, 41-6. . . . Although B.C. quarterback Kent Austin suffered a shoulder separation in the West final, Lions coach Dave Ritchie isn't ruling him out. "I don't think it's going to keep Kent out of the game," said Ritchie. He also said Austin would start against Baltimore in Week 16 -- and the starter was Danny McManus, who delivered Sunday's comeback win after Austin went out. . . . The CFLs are the only team the Lions haven't beaten this season -- Baltimore won the Oct. 22 meeting, 48-31. . . . Lions slotback Mike Trevathan missed the West final when he was quarantined with hepatitis A.
