The University of Manitoba Bisons football team is on its way to Vancouver for its first road game of the season.

They’ll take on the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Sept. 14.

The team is coming off a Sept. 7 loss at home to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, who defeated the Bisons 36-34.

"(We’re) looking forward to it after losing a game with a tick on the clock left at the end, we’re chomping at the bit to get out there and play UBC," said head coach Brian Dobie.

Dobie said the Thunderbirds are coming off a 39-36 overtime win over the University of Alberta.

"They are riding high in Vancouver and we’re coming in to play them and we’ll be ready to go," said Dobie.

Kickoff is at 4 p.m. at Thunderbird Stadium.
