NBC Sports Network will telecast the 100th CFL Grey Cup, this Sunday at 6 p.m. ET from the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. The game will feature two of the league's most prominent pocket passers, as Ricky Ray and the Toronto Argonauts take on Kevin Glenn and the Calgary Stampeders.

Ray and the Stampeders are coming off a 35-29 victory over the B.C. Lions in the West Division final, and the Argonauts won a thrilling 27-20 game over the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL East final.

Calgary’s last appearance was the 96th Grey Cup in 2008, when the Stampeders beat the Montreal Alouettes 22-14 at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Toronto’s last trip to the CFL Final was the 92nd Grey Cup in 2004, when the Argonauts beat the BC Lions 27-19 at Frank Clair Stadium in Ottowa. This year’s game will be a rematch of the 79th Grey Cup in 1991, when the Argonauts beat the Stampeders 36-21 at Winnepeg Stadium in Winnipeg.

During half-time of the game, Grammy Award-winner Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen will perform a special concert on the field and for viewers at home.

Calling the 100th Grey Cup will be TSN CFL play-by-play veteran Chris Cuthbert. Three-time CFL All-Star Glen Suitor will join Cuthbert as game analyst for the telecast. Sara Orlesky and Farhan Lalji will serve as sideline reporters for the game.

NBC Sports Network telecast 14 CFL games in 2012, including the CFL semifinals and finals. The 2012 schedule included the defending Grey Cup Champion BC Lions, Calgary Stampeders, Edmonton Eskimos, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Montreal Alouettes and the Toronto Argonauts.
