The Huskies escaped with a week two win in the narrowest of fashions, coming back in the last two minutes from an eight point deficit and knocking down a questionable two-point convert attempt by the Alberta Golden Bears in overtime. While the Huskies battled a tough and much-improved Bears team all afternoon, they also battled themselves in all three phases of the game. This was certainly not the result one expected after last week’s 71-3 blowout of the Bears by the Dinos and the 44-24 one-sided victory by the Huskies over the Bisons. The Huskies had a difficult game from the start, with Jeremy Long finally getting into the endzone | Full Article

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies kicked off the 2014 season with a bang, shutting out the Manitoba Bisons in the second half on their way to a 44-24 victory over the sixth-ranked team in the country. This victory was a statement, not only of the Huskies’ explosiveness on offence but also how physical and nasty their defence is. It was also a testament to the Huskies’ new-found resilience and ability to adjust during the game, as a tight, closely contested first half turned into a one-sided second half. Drew Burko had a good first game, throwing for four touchdowns and 233 yards. His one interception in the second quarter led | Full Article
