TORONTO (AP) — Henry Burris led Hamilton to a spot in the Grey Cup, throwing three touchdown passes in the Tiger-Cats' 36-24 comeback victory over the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday in the CFL's East Division final.

Hamilton, trying to win the title for the first time since 1999, will face Saskatchewan in the Grey Cup next Sunday in Regina, Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan beat Calgary 35-13 on Sunday in the West final.

Hamilton took a 27-24 lead on Luca Congi's 23-yard field goal on the final play of the third quarter. Congi added a 21-yarder early in the fourth, and Marc Beswick recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown on the final play of the game.

Burris threw 7- and 4-yard touchdown passes to Andy Fantuz in the first half and tied it at 24 in the third with a 14-yarder to Greg Ellingson.
