The 2009 Saskatchewan Roughriders season was the 52nd season for the team in the Canadian Football League. The Roughriders attempted to win their 4th Grey Cup championship but lost to the Alouettes in the Grey Cup final.

During the 2009 Grey Cup on the second last play of the game, Adam Nicolson of the Saskewan Roughriders, lined up as a slot back, behind a defensive linesman, during the missed kick attempt by Montreal. With 11 players already on the defensive line, and with 1 player, #2, in the end-zone to return any missed kicks, Adam Nicolson, an offensive slotback, was on the field as a defender, & therefore, the 13th man on the field, causing the penalty on the play, and providing Montreal with another opprotunity to win the 2009 Grey Cup.

The Roughriders finished the season in first place for the first time since 1976 and finished with a 10–7–1 record.
