- 1956 Grey Cup CFL Program @ Toronto Varsity Stadium: Edmonton Eskimos vs Montreal Alouettes
- The 44th Grey Cup game was played on November 24, 1956, before 27,425 fans at Varsity Stadium in Toronto. The favored Edmonton Eskimos won their third straight Grey Cup over the Montreal Alouettes by the score of 50 to 27. Edmonton coach Pop Ivy surprised many by starting sophomore Canadian quarterback Don Getty. With Jackie Parker, Johnny Bright, Normie Kwong and Rollie Miles in the backfield, they were record setters. Bright rushed for a then Grey Cup record 169 yards (surpassed by Kory Sheets in 2013), and Parker added another 129, and the Eskimos team total was a record 456 yards. Montreal rushed for 191 yards, so both teams set a single Grey Cup game record of 647 yards. Montreal had the game tied as late as the second quarter (20 to 20) before Edmonton took total control. While Getty was superb, with 2 touchdowns, the great Sam Etcheverry had one of his most disappointing days as a Lark, completing only 15 of 38 passes for 293 yards and a Grey Cup record 4 interceptions.
