Lets take a look at the Canadian Football East Division Semifinals and make our picks on which team will be heading to the Grey Cup for a chance at the 2015 trophy. 

Playing at Tim Hortons Field has been a nightmare for Toronto (10-8), which is 0-3 there versus Hamilton (10-8) and 0-5 overall (including two relocated games this year). But going on the road is nothing new for the Argos, who played 13 of their 18 regular-season games away from Rogers Centre and were a respectable 7-6.

After going 7-0 at the venue last year, the Ticats won their first three home games this year but have dropped four of their last six games there since. The Ticats were 8-3 and playing like definite Grey Cup contenders before quarterback Zach Collaros suffered a season-ending knee injury in a 25-18 home loss to Edmonton on Sept. 19. They finished the regular season losing three straight, including a home-and-home series with Ottawa that earned the Redblacks first in the East. Hamilton's offence is vastly different without Collaros.

The unit will have to control the ball and not leave the defence in a position of being on the field too much against Toronto starter Ricky Ray, a three-time Grey Cup champion.
