CFL News in 1995

Two more U.S.marker-based teams were admitted in the CFL with the Birmingham Barracudas and the Memphis Mad Dogs. In the off-season the Sacramento Gold Miners moved to San Antoniomarker to become the San Antonio Texans. The Texans would play their home games at the Alamodomemarker. In the previous season, the Las Vegas Posse, after a terrible inaugural season, ceased operations and folded. The Baltimore Football Club finally found themselves a new nickname and christened themselves the Stallions at the beginning of the second week of the season.

With the admittance of Birmingham and Memphis, the CFL undertook a realignment; the league would now consist of a North and South Division rather than an East and West Division. All five U.S.-based teams would play in the South Division, while all eight Canadian teams would compete in the North Division. Five teams from the North division and three from the South would qualify for the playoffs. To make up for the disparity, the lowest-seeded North Division playoff team (which ended up being Winnipeg) played in the South Division playoffs.

The city of Reginamarker played host to the Grey Cup game for the first time. In the game, viewers at home and at Taylor Fieldmarker witnessed the Baltimore Stallions defeat the Calgary Stampeders, 37-20, becoming the first (and as of now, the only) Americanmarker team to win the Grey Cup.
