The Manitoba Bisons became the 11th team in CIS history to claim the Vanier Cup after an undefeated season.
The Vanier Cup and the Grey Cup were played two days apart in the same stadium, with both games featuring teams from Winnipeg.
This was the seventh consecutive Vanier Cup game that featured a team nicknamed "Huskies."
Manitoba CB Mike Howard had three interceptions and won the Ted Morris Memorial Trophy as game defensive MVP award.
Manitoba QB John Makie finished the game passing 16-of-31 for 261 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions, and also scored on a six-yard touchdown run, and was awarded the Bruce Coulter Trophy as game offensive MVP award.
Manitoba RB Matt Henry suffered a grotesque leg injury in the first quarter. It was later diagnosed as a broken femur.
