The University of Manitoba Bisons football team faced the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Nov. 1 in the team’s first playoff game at Investors Group Field and its first home playoff game in six years — and it was a heart-stopper. The stadium roared as 2,242 fans came out to cheer the Bisons, ranked ninth in the nation, as they took on the No. 10-ranked Huskies in the Canada West semi-final.

The prairie rivals were 1-1 against each other in the regular season and both finished with identical 5-3 records, but the Bisons earned home-field advantage on the basis of total points for-and-against in their games with the Huskies.

The hometown boys managed to pull out a victory, 37-36, with just moments to spare and head oach Brian Dobie was awestruck, offering a simple "Wow," at the post-game press conference.

The Bisons now head to Calgary for the 77th Hardy Cup (the Canada West Final) on Sat., Nov. 9. The winner of that game heads to a national semi-final to earn the right to play in the Vanier Cup.
