- Québec is taking a step that others, such as Greg Layson, have long called for, which is not playing Thanksgiving weekend.
All six teams play on Saturday on the previous Oct. 3 weekend and play Saturday games the following week. No one gets an extra day to get ready for a big game, which is the case in the OUA.
- Fans in the Atlantic won't get a visit from Laval, since the national champions' lone cross-over contest is at home. McGill and Concordia each cross over twice:
Sept. 26: St. FX-Concordia, Sherbrooke-Saint Mary's, McGill-Mount Allison, Acadia-MontréalThat might be a tough one for McGill.
Oct. 17: Bishop's-St. FX, Concordia-Acadia, Mount Allison-Laval, Saint Mary's-McGill
- The home-and-homes:
Bishop's: McGill, Laval
Laval: Bishop's, Montréal
Montréal: Laval, Sherbrooke
Sherbrooke: Concordia, Montréal
