CIS Football Report (Conference Finals Week)

The Conference Finals would cap off a week where the CIS would celebrate the end of the football season. There are only a few weeks left in the official season but the conferences would end their seasons this week with their championships. There were some surprises and some expected results as four teams moved on to the national playoffs and one step closer to the Vanier Cup on November 23rd. As a part of the winding down of the season the nominees for the individual awards were announced.

2013 Yates Cup Preview

The Yates Cup is one of the oldest trophies in North American Sports and the fight to earn the right to lift the 106 year old trophy is always a good one. For the last two year the McMaster Marauders have been given the opportunity to call themselves the OUA champions but all that would change this year. After the loss of former Hec Crighton winner Kyle Quinlan the Marauders were not the same team that had dominated a conference for two years.

2013 OUA Playoff Preview

The CIS season began with a big question as the Big Four in the conferences were the main story that everyone was watching. The Calgary Dinos, Laval Rouge et Or, Acadia Axemen, and the McMaster Marauders had all won their conferences in the last two years and questions of three-peats were beginning to surface. Two of the teams had already been through the three-peat and had won plenty of titles ahead of last year. Two teams in the big four were looking to win the title for the third straight year and begin a time of dominance like in the other two conferences.
