The 1960 Toronto Argonauts finished in first place in the Eastern Conference with a 10–4–0 record. Their first-place finish earned them a bye to the Eastern Finals. The Argonauts lost both games of the two-game, total point Finals to the eventual Grey Cup champion Ottawa Rough Riders.

PreseasonEdit

After playing (and losing to) the NFL Chicago Cardinals in 1959, the Argonauts hosted the NFL Pittsburgh Steelers at CNE Stadium on August 3 in the second of three interleague games hosted in Toronto and lost 43–16. Both teams used 12 players, with a handful of NFL rules (blocking, punt returns) blended in to the Canadian game.
