VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Hamilton star Brandon Banks' punt return for an apparent go-ahead touchdown in the final minute was wiped out by an illegal block, and the Calgary Stampeders held off the Tiger-Cats 20-16 on Sunday night in the Grey Cup.

Calgary won its seventh Canadian Football League title and first since 2008.

Bo Levi Mitchell was 25 for 34 for 334 yards for Calgary, backup Drew Tate had two 1-yard touchdown runs and Rene Parades made two field goals.

Hamilton's Zach Collaros threw for 282 yards and a touchdown, a 45-yarder to Banks late in the first half.

After Paredes' 20-yard field goal made it 20-7 in the third quarter, Hamilton's Justin Medlock connected from 25, 12 and 37 yards in the fourth.
