GUELPH, Ont. -- The Calgary Stampeders recorded five interceptions leading to 18 points and Kevin Glenn threw three touchdown passes, two of them to Jabari Arthur, in a 35-11 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Saturday.
Calgary, which has already secured a playoff spot, improves to 10-3 to remain atop the West Division while Hamilton falls to 6-7.
Maurice Price and Drew Tate also scored touchdowns for Calgary. Back-up quarterback Dan LeFevour scored for the Ticats.
Calgary kicker Rene Parades hit both his field-goal attempts from 41 and 44 yards. Hamilton's Brett Lauther was good on one of three field-goal attempts, missing from 48 and 24 yards and hitting a 27 yarder.
Hamilton starting pivot Henry Burris had 50,367 career passing yards heading into the game and needed just 169 more to move past Ron Lancaster (50,535 yards) and become the fourth-leading passer in CFL history.
But he was pulled late in the third quarter before that could happen.
Burris threw three interceptions, leading to all of Calgary's first-half points. His first two, in back-to-back possessions, were intended for rookie Luke Tasker who was making his CFL debut. Glenn turned those picks into two quick TDs for a 14-1 lead early in the second quarter, and the Stamps never looked back. Burris' third interception late in the second quarter led to a 41-yard Parades field goal and a 17-1 lead.
Burris was replaced by LeFevour late in the third with the Ticats down 27-4.
LeFevour immediately led the Ticats 65 yards downfield, keeping the ball for a one-yard TD and pulling Hamilton to 27-11 to end the quarter.
But Glenn continued to lead the attack to begin the fourth as Calgary put together a three-play, 77-yard drive, anchored by a 34-yard run by Jon Cornish and finished with a 35-yard TD strike to Arthur and the 34-11 lead.
Derrius Brooks recorded the Stamps fourth interception of the game, this one off of LeFevour, midway through the fourth leading to a 52-yard punt single by Rob Maver.
Hamilton's Brandon Boudreaux intercepted a tipped Glenn pass on the Calgary 15 nearing the three-minute mark. But Calgary defender Jamar Wall responded with his second pick of the night, this one in the end zone, to end a dismal night for the Ticats.
Hamilton had a rough start to the game when Lauther, taking over from veteran Hamilton kicker Luca Congi, missed his first two field-goal attempts in the first quarter - from 48 and 24 yards out. One was run out of the end zone, giving the Ticats a 1-0 lead.
The quarter ended with an interception by Calgary's Micah Johnson off a Burris pass intended for Tasker, and the Stamps began their drive in the second quarter on their own 51-yard line.
Three plays later, Glenn hit Arthur for the 52-yard catch-and-run and a 7-1 Calgary lead. On Hamilton's next possession, Burris again threw to Tasker, and this time it was intercepted by Eric Fraser. On the next play, Glenn hit Price for a 42-yard TD strike and suddenly the Stamps had opened up a 14-1 lead just 2:48 into the second quarter.
