canada westAugust 6, 2013, EDMONTON AB (ISN) – Canada West Universities Athletic Association and Shaw Communications, official broadcaster of Canada West football, have reached an agreement to showcase the 77th Hardy Cup football championship live across Canada, November 9th on local Shaw TV stations and Shaw TV Direct, channel 299.

This completes a season-long Canada West football broadcast schedule on Shaw TV during 2013 that now includes nine games featuring all six conference schools, coverage of a key match-up on the final week of the conference season, both Hardy Cup semifinals and the title game to decide who hosts the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national semifinal on November 16th.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies are featured on four occasions, with the Manitoba Bisons, UBC Thunderbirds, Regina Rams, Alberta Golden Bears and five-time defending Hardy Cup champion Calgary Dinos each making two appearances. Any of the three contests during the Oct. 25-26 weekend could be broadcast as all six schools round out the regular season.

Both Canada West semifinal games on November 1st & 2nd, will be broadcast live on Shaw TV, followed a week later by the 77th Hardy Cup on Saturday, Nov. 9th.

The Canada West champion hosts the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) winner in the Mitchell Bowl on the weekend of Nov. 16th and the CIS 49th Vanier Cup national championship is to be played at Université Laval in Quebec City on Saturday, Nov. 23rd.

The 2013 broadcast team features WHL on Shaw host Andy Neal as host of Krown Produce Canada West Football on Shaw, Jim Mullin providing play-by-play for his 11th consecutive season in Canada West and seventh with Shaw TV, former Saskatchewan Huskies quarterback Laurence Nixon and 2004 Hec Crighton Award winner Jesse Lumsden on colour commentary, along with former San Francisco 49er and CFL defensive end Daved Benefield in his fourth year of analysis.

This season, Krown Produce Canada West Countdown will debut as a 30-minute pregame show, hosted by Ryan Sullivan and Andrew Wadden, marking the third season of the CIS football show. Countdown will feature a Coast-to-Coast Highlight Reel, panel discussion and more. For those who want their CIS news earlier, Krown Produce CIS Coast-to-Coast will be available online every Wednesday night and on Shaw TV Vancouver.
