QUEBEC CITY – In the 46th edition of the Desjardins Vanier
Cup, the top-ranked Laval Rouge et Or captured their sixth Vanier
Cup title with a 29-2 victory over the Calgary Dinos before a
sold-out hometown crowd of 16,237 at PEPS Stadium on Saturday.
In what was statistically the most commanding defensive effort in Vanier Cup history, the Rouge et Or held the powerful Dinos offence to just 140 net yards, bettering the previous Vanier Cup mark of 161 net yards allowed by the Guelph Gryphons in their 1984 victory over the Mount Allison Mounties.
Canada West and Mitchell Bowl champion Calgary came into the game having scored 35 points or more in five straight contests, including a 42-point average in three playoff duels.
