With CIS football season two weeks away, our fifth-annual series of football previews will begin next week.
(For those new to the site, here are 2011's previews, 2010's, and 2009's.)
This year, teams in the larger conferences will be previewed together in a live panel discussion with several of our own contributors as well as followers of CIS football from around the Canadian sports world.
Here are the dates for our previews:
Live panel discussion on Tuesday, August 21 at 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT.
Live panel discussion on Thursday, August 23 at 7:00pm ET / 4:00 pm PT.
We will be previewing the AUS teams individually as in past years, with two teams published on each of Monday, August 27 and Tuesday, August 28.
Live panel discussion on Thursday, August 30 at 1:00pm ET / 10:00am PT.
We will also publish our picks for conference champions and the Vanier Cup winner on Friday, August 31, in advance of the season opener that night in Saskatoon.
If you can't wait for a preview, the CIS previews (in most cases written by that team's athletic department) have already started and are available here.
