The Laval Rouge et Or football team began its first regular season in 1996 and has quickly become one of the most successful programs in Canadian Interuniversity Sport history. The Rouge et Or have won a record eight Vanier Cup championships and are currently the defending champions after winning the 49th Vanier Cup in 2013. They are also the only program to have played in four straight Vanier Cups .[2]

Laval won their first national championship in 1999, under former head coach, Jacques Chapdelaine, bringing the Vanier Cup back to Quebec for the first time since 1987. Chapdelaine left the program following the 2000 season. In 2001, current head coach Glen Constantin was hired and the team went on to win seven more Vanier Cup titles, in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013. The Rouge et Or have a record of 8–1 in the Vanier Cup.

Football game opposing Rouge et Or and Axemen at Laval

In the 2006 Vanier Cup, they defeated the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 13–8, in a game played at Saskatoon in temperatures below −20 °C. Linebacker Éric Maranda was chosen to play in the U.S. East-West Shrine Game in Houston, Texas on January 19, 2008.

In the 2008 Vanier Cup, Laval, ranked first in Canada, defeated the third-ranked Western Ontario Mustangs 44–21 to claim their fifth national championship.

In 2010, Laval dominated the University of Calgary Dinos 29–2 to win their sixth Vanier Cup championship. They are the first team in CIS history to win 13 straight games in 13 weeks of play after they played nine regular season games in 2010 (CIS teams typically play eight). Their defence also set a Vanier Cup record for fewest yards allowed, 147.

Laval lost to McMaster University in the 2011 Vanier Cup, their first loss in a Vanier Cup game, and stalled the program's bid to win a record seven Vanier Cups. The close game was won by McMaster 41-38, with a field goal in double overtime.[3]

The Rouge et Or defeated the McMaster Marauders 37-14 to win the 2012 Vanier Cup. The Championship is the seventh in Université Laval history, making them the all time winningest school in Canadian championship history.
