    Big time match up in the Mitchell with the Dinos facing the very tough Western Mustangs.

    Out east the Uteck features the third 8-0 team Laval against the Cinderella story of Mount Allison.

    Beautiful!



    I wrote a piece this week that talks about a hybrid system for Canada that would be a lot of fun if it was in place - http://sportseh.ca/article/can-t-playoffs-and-bowl-games-work-together

    Not too long ago Saint Mary's beat Mount Allison 105-0. Prompting some CIS pundits to call for a 2 Tier System and drop down half of the CIS football. I think my piece has a lot more merit than that.

    And now Mount Allison beat St-Mary's to play in the Uteck Bowl in front of what should be a raucous newbie crowd

    Avast ye scurvy Yankee. Next you'll be giving us boring 4 down football and removing our precious rouge. :p

    It is going to be UGLY today at McMahon in terms of weather.

    Not the same type of ugly it's going to be in Sunday when the flat-landers show up, (that's much uglier), but still a brutal day for football.

    Bundle up and show your support for the Dinos!

    Laval 30 Mount Allison 7 in the 2Q.

    Disappointed that there's no free webcast for a game of this magnitude. Who is paying $8 to watch it? And it appears that there is no English webcast of the Uteck at all? Grow the game!!!!!

    Why bother? The Duncemore was way better. At least Mt. A scored 7. Kudos.

    You didn't post any scores but I'll have you down for Laval and Calgary

    Laval scored on a screen pass where Boutin went untouched the rest of the way.

    But Mount Allison just forced a fumble and recovered! 37-7 in the 3Q.

    Perhaps the oldest reffing crew in the history of Canadian football.

    Third quarter comes to a close and Mount Allison scores with zeroes on the clock. It's 37-14 for Laval.

    3 possession game...any Laval fans getting nervous?

    Laval works it down field and attempts a FG but the botched snap stops the scoring drive. Mount Allison takes over.

    Mount A goes nowhere, punts and it gets returned for a TD. Poor punt, worse coverage.

    Imagine from McMahon from the Riders scout:

    Mount Allison scored but the 4Q was poorly played by both teams.

    48-21 Final and Laval heads to yet another Vanier.

    Now to find an online webcast of the Mitchell Bowl.

    Not many believed Laval would get scored on 4 times. Mount Allison's offense is awful and with little imagination. They'd be better served going to a power formation that would at least give the QB some time.

    Dinos get on the board first after a Western fumble. It's 3-0.

    Johnny Mark is making a serious case for a future CFL career making all these FGs in cold, ugly, snowy weather.

    Oh I had the score wrong. 48-21 was the Uteck Bowl score. Gave the Mounties an extra TD there.

    Nearly halftime and it's 17-3 Calgary. Will Finch was hit hard on an INT and was in serious discomfort.

    FG with nothing left on the clock. Dinos go into the locker room 20-3.

    Finch makes it out for the start of the second half. Gutsy performance from the Hec nominee.

    Into the 4Q and it's 44-3 for the Dinos.
