- Laval (4-0): W 12-4 vs. McGill. My rankings had them as about 45-point favourites going into this game, and I guess they did not cover.
- Western (4-0): W 34-28 at Laurier. First time the Mustangs have had a game in doubt this year. The WLU offence and punter apparently had 4:30 reservations at Morty's, because how else do you explain their second-last drive? With less than three minutes to play, they failed to convert a 2nd and 1, then punted (for a grand total of 15 yards!) on 3rd and 2.
- Calgary (4-0): W 38-24 vs. Saskatchewan. It was 36-10 as late as halfway through the fourth. Just a consistently good effort from Calgary. Gain eight yards per play and you'll often score enough to win, even if you lose the turnover battle (3 to 2 for the Huskies). Steven Lumbala rushed for 107 on 9, including a 45-yard TD; Eric Dzwilewski (20/28, 255) connected with Chris Dobko 11 times for 11 yards per catch.
- Montreal (3-1 for now): W 36-22 at Bishop's. They were down 10-7, but then the last minute of the first half happened: 36-yard punt return, 10-yard Rotrand Sene TD, fumble on a kick return, 26-yard pass, 9-yard TD pass. 20-10. The Gaiters later conceded a safety; Chris Lund (and I) would like a word with them.
- Sherbrooke (3-1): W 33-26 at Concordia in what was likely the game of the week. (Jared said 32-25. Slacker.)
- McMaster (3-1): W 37-13 at Guelph. Five turnovers in the first half alone! How did they win this? You know, other than holding Guelph to 37 yards rushing. Of note: rookie linebacker Aram Eisho led the team with 8.5 tackles, more than he had in the first three games combined.
- Saskatchewan (2-2): L 38-24 at Calgary. Only 10 completed passes. There have been better games. They have a rematch against the Dinos on Oct. 14 though. The Huskies started their too-little, too-late, non-comeback with a six-yard TD run by Garrett Bolen, only his third carry of the year, but around here we call that 2/15ths of a Steven Lumbala.
- Saint Mary's (2-1 for now): W 60-6 vs. Mount Allison (in Moncton). I think it's adorable that Neate chose the Mounties to win this one.
- UBC (3-1): W 29-23 vs. Manitoba. Perhaps the most efficient offence in CIS — though let's give them another shot at Calgary, and maybe a bowl game, before we coronate them as such.
- Manitoba (2-2): L 29-23 at UBC. Four out of six teams ranked in Canada West, and three of six in the Laval conference? Oh well. This No. 10 team will drop out, be replaced by Windsor or Acadia, who will probably lose next week and drop out, then be replaced by...
