The East West Bowl, a showcase of more than 80 Canadian Interuniversity Sport football players, will be available to Windsor area fans live over the Internet.
The game will feature four Lancers: quarterback Austin Kennedy, receiver Evan Pszczonak, defensive lineman Stephon Miller and defensive back Josh Burns. It will kick off at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 11, on the campus of Western University.
Canadian Interuniversity Sport has named four Windsor Lancers to the roster for the 11th annual East West Bowl, an all-star football showcase set for Saturday, May 11, at TD Waterhouse Stadium on the campus of Western University.
Quarterback Austin Kennedy, receiver Evan Pszczonak, defensive back Josh Burns and defensive lineman Stephon Miller will compete for the West team. The game showcases—for the most part—CIS players who will be eligible for the following year’s Canadian Football League draft.
The Lancer cross-country teams will look for top performances on Saturday when Canadian Interuniversity Sport celebrates 50 years of competition in the sport during its national championship meet in London. The event will feature 125 athletes from 25 schools in the women’s five-kilometre race at noon; 129 runners from 24 institutions are scheduled to take the start of the 10-kilometre men’s event at 1 p.m.
Saturday’s football game offers more than the opportunity to watch the Lancer team—ranked seventh in the nation after Monday’s lopsided victory over Ottawa—take on the Guelph Gryphons under the lights on Alumni Field.
It also marks the Windsor debut of the NFL on Campus, a program of the American professional football league offering interactive games, promotions and prizes for young fans.
The Lancer football team thrilled more than 4,000 fans Monday at University Stadium with a convincing 63-18 win over the Ottawa Gee Gees to open the 2012 season.
Among the highlights on offense, quarterback Austin Kennedy notched 482 passing yards on 31 completions, including six touchdowns—tying the team record. Receiver Jordan Brescacin pulled down three touchdowns and totalled 214 yards.

Four Lancers will take to the field this weekend for the biggest annual showcase of Canadian university football talent.
Quarterback Austin Kennedy, defensive back Matt McGarva, defensive lineman Garrit Post and receiver Evan Pszczonak will play for the West in the 10th annual Canadian Interuniversity Sport East-West Bowl, Saturday in London.
