Revenge for THE Dynasty (48th Vanier Cup Review)

The Laval Rouge et Or went into the 48th Vanier Cup with a very clear goal in mind and that was to get some revenge for their loss in the 47th Vanier Cup a year ago. They would be in tough against the best team in the country though with Kyle Quinlan leading the McMaster Marauders to an undefeated season. The Marauders and Rouge et Or had met before in the 47th Vanier Cup in 2011 in what had become known as the Greatest Game Ever Played.

Déjà vu at its Best (48th Vanier Cup Preview)

The 2012 CIS season has seen one thing dominate the season and that is the consistency to which the season has played out.

The similarities continued as the Mitchell and Uteck Bowls saw the McMaster Marauders and Laval Rouge et Or take the wins.

CIS football Report (47th Vanier Cup)

I have seen many football games in my time but I have never seen a game that was as good as the 47th Vanier Cup.

It all started before the ball was even kicked off as the game was built as a typical David vs. Goliath matchup.
