Saturday football game to feature two of country’s Top 10 teams

Saturday’s Lancer football game just got a lot more interesting, as Windsor joined McMaster in Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s top 10 national rankings. The two teams will play under the lights Saturday on Alumni Field. Kick-off is at 7 p.m.

A release announcing the newest results of the national poll noted the 2-0 Lancers were rewarded for last week’s 41-40 upset of Laurier. Windsor is now ranked 10th in the country; the Marauders are seventh after a loss to Western.

The Lancers will field the Ontario University Athletics male athlete of the week in quarterback Austin Kennedy, recognized for his performance against Laurier, which had been ranked eighth nationally before losing to Windsor.

Kennedy finished 25 of 37 passes for 443 yards and five touchdowns, and added 112 rushing yards. He was also named OUA football’s offensive player of the week.
