Rouge et Or footballers rejoice in their ninth Vanier Cup win: From left to right (those in white shirts only) are Mathieu Betts, Jean-Simon Roy, Félix Faubert-Lussier, Hugo Richard (who scored the winning touchdown) and Gabriel Marcoux. 

Université Laval's Rouge et Or football team fought back adversity, and took their ninth Vanier Cup with a come-from-behind 31-26 victory over the University of Calgary Dinosaurs at the Tim Horton's stadium in Hamilton, Ontario, on November 26. Winning nine titles of the 52 presentations of the Vanier Cup is a U Sports record.
