  • Mixed martial arts:
    • Sam Vasquez, a fighter out of Houston, Texas, becomes the first MMA fighter to die from injuries sustained in a sanctioned bout in the United States. He collapsed shortly after being knocked out in an October 20 fight, was operated on twice for blood clots in the brain, and then suffered a stroke that left him comatose until his death.

    • Canadian Interuniversity Sport national semifinals (CIS Top 10 rankings in parentheses)
      • Uteck Bowl: (1) Laval Rouge-et-Or 2 at (4) Saint Mary's Huskies 24 – In the battle of the winners of five of the last six Vanier Cups, the hometown Huskies, in front of an Atlantic Bowl crowd at Huskies Stadium, shock the number one ranked team in the nation and the number two ranked offense in the nation, ending Laval's winning streak at 14 games. Linebacker Tim St. Pierre is the game's MVP, having two sacks, one forced fumble, and one touchdown in the Huskies' rout, as they avenge their only loss of the season to Laval back in October.
      • Mitchell Bowl: (10) Western Ontario Mustangs 20 at (3) Manitoba Bisons 52 – The undefeated Herd scores 24 unanswered points in the second quarter, rout the Mustangs and advance to meet the Huskies for the first time since 2001, when they met the same opponent that they will meet this year. However, the Bisons did allow a touchdown in the third quarter, ending their run of 245:28 (just over four games) without allowing a touchdown. The Bisons also break their school record for the most points scored in the game, the previous mark having been set the previous week against the Rams.
