Laval quarterback Hugo Richard tries to escape three Carabins defenders in last week’s 12-7 win over the Université de Montréal. During that game, Richard became the university’s all-time leader in total career yards as quarterback, ahead of Benoit Groulx.

The much-anticipated first meeting of the season between the Université Laval Rouge et Or and the Université de Montréal Carabins was held on Sept. 8 at the CEPSUM stadium in Montreal.

After the Rouge et Or offence shredded the Concordia University Stingers a week earlier, it was the defence who shined in the 12-7 win over the Carabins.
