CIS Football Report (Week 3)

The CIS went into the third week of the season with the top teams asserting their dominance over the competition. This was true of the Western Mustangs as they took on their equals from last year in the Ottawa Gee Gees. Last year the Gee Gees were one of the best teams in the nation and won the OUA regular season title. As they marched towards the Vanier Cup they met the Western Mustangs in the Yates Cup final. The Gee Gees season ended when the Mustangs beat them in the Yates Cup. This year the Mustangs are favorites to win the OUA but the Gee Gees were hanging on through two weeks of the season.

Can OUA Stay Strong? (OUA Preview)

In the biggest Conference of the CIS there is one more team competing for the Yates cup this year. Last year Waterloo’s program was suspended due to the discovery of performance enhancing drugs in student’s lockers. This year they will return but with many of their players transferring or graduating they, most likely, will not threaten. University of Toronto and York University will be in this boat with Waterloo although The Varsity Blues have shown more signs of life. The ones to watch will be the Western Mustangs, McMaster Marauders, and the Guelph Gryphons as all three of these teams have remained strong and look to improve on their seasons last year.
