Both starting quarterbacks ended up leaving the game. The CFL's Most Outstanding Player Award winner Tom Wilkinson was injured when sacked by Junior Ah You and was replaced by Bruce Lemmerman. Sonny Wade came off the Alouettes bench to replace Alouettes starting quarterback Jimmy Jones. Wade made almost a trademark of coming on in relief, something he did not only in this game but also in the 1975 and 1978 Grey Cups, almost winning both games.

Sonny Wade won his second Grey Cup Most Valuable Player award (Offence) while completing only 10 of 25 passes for 139 yards. Junior Ah You won the award on Defence.

Edmonton and Montreal have met in 11 Grey Cup clashes. The Eskimos have won in 1954, 1955, 1956, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2003 and 2005's overtime thriller. The Larks have prevailed in 1974, the Ice Bowl of 1977, and 2002.
