Grey Cup, Nov. 26, 2000

Final Score: British Columbia Lions 28, Montreal Alouettes 26 Attendance: 43,822 at McMahon Stadium, Calgary

The 2000 Grey Cup remains memorable for two reasons.

It was the first Grey Cup won by a team with a losing record in regular-season play, BC at 8-10.

And it brought to a close the longest career in CFL history, the 25-year tenure of legendary Lions kicker Lui Passaglia.

Fittingly, Passaglia provided a storybook finish with a decisive 29-yard field goal and 85 seconds left on the clock.

But BC had to hold its collective breath before celebrating as Montreal marched right back for a touchdown with 44 seconds remaining.

Clinging to a 28-26 lead, the Lions foiled a two-point conversion attempt and recovered the ensuing onside kick to clinch the Cup.

Robert Drummond was named Most Valuable Player, and Sean Millington, Most Valuable Canadian.
