The 1960 BC Lions finished the season in fourth place in the West Division with a 5–9–2 record. Coming off of last season's success, the fan attendance continued to be very strong, with an average of over 30,000 fans per game. However, due to inconsistent quarterbacking, the Lions failed to make the playoffs in consecutive seasons. On the bright side, running back Willie Fleming made the All-Star team with a team record 1,051 yards rushing for an astounding 8.4 yards per carry average. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers continued their dominance over the Lions, sweeping all four games and improving their all time mark to 24–4 versus BC.
