Uteck and Mitchell Bowls: A head-to-head look

120

Nov 18, 2014

OTTAWA (CIS) – The stage is set for the CIS football national semifinals on Saturday, when the last four teams still standing will battle for a berth in the historic 50th TELUS Vanier Cup at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium in Montreal, Nov. 29.

The Canada West champion Manitoba Bisons (6-4) and the RSEQ titlist Montreal Carabins (9-1) kick things off in the Uteck Bowl at CEPSUM Stadium in Montreal, live on Sportsnet 360 and SRC (Radio-Canada) at 12:30 p.m. Eastern,

The ArcelorMittal Dofasco Mitchell Bowl follows at 4 p.m. Eastern, with the AUS champion Mount Allison Mounties (9-0) visiting the newly-crowned OUA monarch McMaster Marauders (9-1) at Ron Joyce Stadium in Hamilton, live on Sportsnet 360.

Both games will also be streamed live at www.CIS-SIC.tv.

It’s safe to say no one saw this coming.

In a season where disparity was one of the hottest topics of conversation, the two longest championship streaks in CIS football history came to an end in last Saturday’s conference finals. As well, for the first time since 2007 and for only the second time in 15 years, only one league champion is back at the national Final Four for a second straight campaign.

In what has to be considered the biggest upset of the past weekend, Montreal captured their first Dunsmore Cup in program history thanks to a 12-9 overtime win in Quebec City over bitter archrival and reigning two-time Vanier Cup champion Laval.

The list of Laval CIS-record streaks that came crashing to an end with the result is impressive: 11 consecutive conference titles; four Vanier Cup appearances in a row; and, last but not least, 70 straight wins overall on home turf dating back to 2004. The Rouge et Or also missed out on the chance to become the first team to three-peat as Vanier Cup champ.

A few hours after the thrilling Carabins victory, it was Manitoba’s turn to rock the CIS football world with a 27-15 Hardy Cup triumph in Calgary. The Dinos had claimed the last six Canada West banners, tying them with Saint Mary’s (1999-2004) for the second longest conference championship run in history.

Meanwhile, in the Yates Cup in Hamilton, the McMaster-Guelph duel was as close as expected. Two and a half months after opening their OUA schedule with an OT win against the Gryphons, the Marauders once again prevailed, this time 20-15, to return to the national semis for the third time in four years.

A week before the other league finals, On Nov. 8, Mount Allison had repeated as AUS champs for only the second time in school history (1984-1985) thanks to a 29-7 Loney Bowl victory over StFX. Fresh off their first-ever unblemished regular season, the Mounties are the only remaining undefeated team in the country.

While the Carabins will play in the first Bowl game on Saturday, the Bisons and Mounties have never played in a Bowl game away from home. For their part, the Marauders are only 1-3 all-time on home turf in the CIS semis.

It will be the first-ever matchups between both Montreal and Manitoba, as well as McMaster and Mount Allison.

Danny Maciocia knows a thing or two about winning big football games. The fourth-year Montreal bench boss helped the Edmonton Eskimos claim the Grey Cup as an offensive coordinator (2003) and head coach (2005). He also guided Canada to back-to-back world junior championships in 2005 and 2006.

“I knew there was a trophy at the end of our last game, but I was really looking at that game as a quarter-final. I didn’t immediately realize the impact of that win,” said Maciocia, whose troops had also defeated Laval in their conference finale at CEPSUM Stadium on Nov. 1, prevailing 13-9 in a game without any real playoff implications for either team. “I’ve received so many messages. I had never seen such a reaction in my entire life. I now realize that we accomplished something very special.

“On Saturday, we’ll represent our entire conference and province. We have an opportunity to make history and it will be interesting to see the reaction of our fans. We’re facing a very good team. The Bisons are a typical western team, physical, with big players. They’ll want to establish their ground game and we’re expecting quite a battle at the line of scrimmage.”

Brian Dobie, coach of the Bisons, also boasts an impressive coaching resume, including the only Vanier Cup title by a Canada West team in the past 16 years, a 28-14 victory over Saint Mary’s in 2007 in Toronto.

“We’re very much looking forward to heading east to play Montreal in the Uteck Bowl. Coach Maciocia and his staff are coming off a tremendous win at Laval in the Dunsmore Cup. Both our teams have had to fight on the road to get to this Bowl game and I anticipate a great playoff contest on Saturday.”

Neither Montreal nor Manitoba looked like Vanier Cup contenders following their regular season openers in early September, when the Carabins lost 40-13 at Laval and the Bisons were dominated 44-24 at Saskatchewan.

While the Carabins immediately righted the ship and have won nine straight since that rocky start, the Bisons have been on a roller-coaster ride all season, losing to four different Canada West opponents en route to a 4-4 league record and waiting until the last day of the campaign to secure a playoff berth, thanks to a 50-31 win over first-place Calgary.

The wild ride continued in their Canada West semifinal in Saskatoon, when the Bisons had to overcome a 19-point deficit to beat Saskatchewan 47-39, a win capped by a touchdown pass from standout receiver Nic Demski to quarterback Jordan Yantz with less than two minutes remaining. Then came the Hardy Cup final in Calgary, where Manitoba won the turnover battle by a mind-boggling 10-0 margin to put an end to the Dinos dynasty.

Demski, Yantz and the rest of the Manitoba offence have their work cut out for them if they hope to turn the Uteck Bowl into another shootout.

Led by fourth-year linebacker Byron Archambault, the RSEQ defensive player of the year and a top prospect for the 2015 CFL draft, the Montreal defence was the best in the country this season against the pass (183.4 yards per game), ranked second in total yards allowed (301.6) and third in points against (12.5). The Carabins also kept powerhouse Laval out of the end zone in back-to-back games and held the vaunted Rouge et Or rushing attack, which had accumulated over 800 yards on the ground in the last two Vanier Cups combined, to 80 yards in the Dunsmore Cup, including 54 by quarterback Hugo Richard.

At the ArcelorMittal Dofasco Mitchell Bowl in Hamilton, McMaster coach Stefan Ptaszek hopes to add to his program’s back-to-back Bowl wins in 2011 and 2012. The former was followed a week later by the first Vanier Cup triumph in school history.

“This has been a special season for us, as nobody considered us one of the favourites to win the OUA, but we have a tremendous group of senior leaders who wanted to end their careers in style. We set some goals at the start of the year and getting to the Mitchell Bowl was one of them,” said Ptaszek, who was a receiver with Wilfrid Laurier when the Golden Hawks beat Mount Allison 25-18 in the 1991 Vanier Cup. “Mount Allison has had a great season and presents a tough challenge for us. The Mounties have Bowl game experience and we will have to bring our best effort if we want to win. I’m very happy to be able to play this game in front of our McMaster fans and I hope that our 13th man can be a factor on Saturday.”

Ptaszek’s counterpart Kelly Jeffrey has led Mount Allison to their only undefeated regular season this fall, after guiding the Mounties to their first Bowl appearance since 1997 a year ago, a 48-21 home loss to Laval.

“We’re excited to be back in the Final Four with so many veterans who went through this experience last year. McMaster is exceptionally well-coached with great depth and balance all the way through their football team. We are looking forward to a great environment for the Mitchell Bowl against the Yates Cup champions three of the last four years.”

While the Mounties didn’t exactly light it up during their undefeated AUS campaign, averaging a middle-of-the-pack 29 points a game, their defence was second to none, finishing first in the nation with only eight points allowed per contest and ranking third in both total yards allowed (324.0) and against the run (98.1).

In their lone confrontation against a non-AUS opponent, in Week 4, the two-time Atlantic champs easily handled Bishop’s 26-3 in Lennoxville, Que.

The Mitchell Bowl could turn into a low-scoring affair since the Marauders have also excelled on the defensive side of the ball this year. Led by linebacker Nick Shortill, the OUA defensive MVP, McMaster ranked first in Ontario in points (17.8) and total yards allowed (333.5) and placed second against the pass (201.4) and the run (132.1).

With ball control always a key factor in the playoffs, it will be interesting to watch the battle of running backs between Mount A’s Chris Reid and McMaster’s Chris Pezzetta.

Reid, the AUS rookie of the year, led his conference and placed second in the nation with 987 yards in eight league contests. Pezzetta is coming off 143 and 144-yard performances in the Marauders first two post-season tilts.

Here is a by-the-numbers look at the four remaining contenders for a spot in the 50th TELUS Vanier Cup.
