U SPORTS Football Weekend Watch: A head-to-head look at the 55th Vanier Cup presented by Promutuel Insurance

TORONTO / QUEBEC CITY – The stage is set for the 55th Vanier Cup presented by Promutuel Insurance, Saturday in Quebec City, where the Calgary Dinos and Montreal Carabins will battle for Canadian university football supremacy.

Kickoff for the U SPORTS national final is set for 1 p.m. Eastern (10 a.m. Pacific) at TELUS-Université Laval Stadium, which first welcomed the fall classic in 2009 and is now a six-time host venue. 

The championship match is televised live on CBC and TVA Sports.

Livestreaming of the Vanier Cup will also be available on the free CBC Gem streaming service, CBCSports.ca and the CBC Sports app for iOS and Android devices – offering coverage both domestically and internationally. Fans can access the French webcast with a valid subscription via TVASports.ca.

While it will mark the first-ever confrontation between the powerhouse programs, both will be in familiar territory when they step onto the field later this week.

Both contenders enter the duel with identical 9-2 records, and their confidence at a season-high following convincing wins in last Saturday’s Uteck and Mitchell Bowls.

Dinos or Carabins? The answer on Saturday.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
