5 Things

  1. The Huskies moved back into the U Sports Top 10 last week after a three point road victory over the previously No. 4 ranked Calgary Dinos.
  2. Saskatchewan has now clinched a playoff spot and can finish anywhere from 2nd to 4th. A Huskie win and Calgary loss would slot the Huskies second. If Calgary wins the Huskies can finish no higher than 3rd. A Huskie loss and Manitoba win would land the Huskies in 4th.
  3. The Huskies are aiming for their first three game conference winning streak since 2012 when they won their final three games of the regular season.
  4. The Huskies will honour their fifth-year players prior to Friday’s kickoff.
  5. Friday night is Great Western Brewing Company Fan Appreciation. Fans have a chance to win $2,000 in Rally Alley, a trip to Las Vegas and plenty more fantastic prizes throughout the night.
