August 24, 2021 - Canadian Football League (CFL) - Toronto Argonauts News Release

TORONTO - The Canadian Football League announced today that Argonauts QB Nick Arbuckle has been named week three's Top Performer for his performance against Winnipeg.

Arbuckle, making his first start as a Toronto Argonaut, helped guide the Boatmen to a 30-23 victory over the defending Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers last Saturday evening at BMO Field.

The California native completed 23-of-32 passes for 310 yards and one passing touchdown, while rushing for another major halfway through the third quarter. This was Arbuckle's fourth career 300-yard passing game and it helped Toronto get to 2-1 and first place in the East Division.
