Mathieu Betts, winner of the 2019 J.P. Metras Trophy awarded annually to the Outstanding Down Lineman in U Sports football, will stay in Canada and wear the green and yellow uniform of the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos.

The Quebec Remparts will start the 2019-20 season with two games on the road this week.

On Sept. 20 in Victoriaville, the Remparts will take to the ice for the first time this season, against the Tigres.

The next day, Sept. 21, the team nicknamed the Diables Rouges will go further west; they’ll be travelling to Drummondville to play the Voltigeurs in an afternoon contest.
