In a rematch of last year’s national championship, the Université Laval Rouge et Or once again came through in adversity to earn a spot in next week’s Vanier Cup final by beating the University of Calgary Dinos on their own turf, 35-23, on Nov. 18. It’s also the third time that Laval has won the Mitchell Bowl, formerly known as the Atlantic Bowl.
