Conference Final weekend had the potential to produce a lot of familiar teams in the National Playoffs but at least one team took their opportunity to make an impact and move one step closer to the Vanier Cup.

The theme of dominance in the CIS can be nailed down to two conferences that have seen the same teams raise their championship trophies. As the OUA and AUS continue to exchange their champions the RSEQ and CanWest conferences have seen long reigns from their champions. The OUA and the AUS would begin to look like their neighbours but this year will see new champions rather than a three-peat for either team.

I have said many times before that winning consistently in college football is the hardest thing to do because of how teams are made. In college football teams are only together for a limited time as they come in to the school and then graduate. In the CIS there are only a maximum of 5 years for every player to play on any team as after that they no longer have eligibility.

CIS Football Report (Semi-Finals)

CIS Football was officially in playoff mode this week as every conference held the semi-finals of their conference. It is the best time of year as the best teams face off with everything on the line. If they lose they go home with nothing but a playoff spot to boast about but if they win they live to fight another day in the CIS season. The regular season doesn’t matter in the playoffs besides the deciding what field you play on.

The CIS playoffs continued this week with the conference finals taking place as teams looked to win their conference. With a win the teams would move one step closer to Vancouver and the Vanier Cup as they will enter the National playoffs. It all kicked off on Friday when the CanWest wrapped up their season with the Hardy Cup between the Calgary Dinos and the UBC Thunderbirds.

This year in the CanWest Conference saw familiar faces at the top with the Calgary Dinos and the Saskatchewan Huskies in the top two positions. The domination of the CanWest conference looked to continue for these two teams as the only competition for first place was each other for the 3 years in a row. It did not work out that way as Saskatchewan was taken out of the second spot by the UBC Thunderbirds who surprised everyone with their great season.
