Tom and I discuss the Huskies’ 45-29 win against UBC.

Tom and I break down the Huskies first win of the season, a win against the Regina Rams.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies defeated the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks 33-10 in a preseason game Friday night. Below is the post-game reaction from Tom and I.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies bounced back from their worst loss of the season last week with a big win against the Alberta Golden Bears. Not only did they come away with a strong, statement-making victory, but they clinched their 14th straight playoff spot in the process. The Huskies took their time putting last week’s loss to the Bisons behind them, coming out slowly in the first quarter. The Bears scored a touchdown on their opening drive and had a 7-0 lead after the first quarter. It wasn’t until mid-way through the second that the Huskie offence came alive, putting together a 10-play, 90-yard drive that ended in a Kit | Full Article

Instead of a game story, we decided to record our fourth episode of Outsider Radio, recapping the game and looking forward to next week’s match up with the Rams. Click here for the box score of tonight’s close game.

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

A win is a win, no matter how you do it. After losing two in a row, the Huskies needed a win badly, and luckily the non-playoff Regina Rams were on the schedule. In spite of being the favourites to win the game, they once again took the hard road to a victory, pulling away in the fourth quarter after a sloppy, turnover filled game that was far too close for far too long. The defence came out ready to play, holding the Regina offence to three first downs in the first quarter and forcing three two-and-outs and one safety and a Braxton Lawrence interception. The Huskies offence was able | Full Article

The Saskatchewan Huskies defence is far better than the nearly 600 yards that they surrendered on Friday night indicates. When you’re on the field for two-thirds of the second half, giving up some yardage, and ultimately some points, is inevitable. The Calgary Dinos rolled to another victory over the Huskies, improving their record to 6-0 and locking up first place for the third year in a row. The Huskies dropped to 4-2 and now have to fight the hungry Manitoba Bisons for second place and the opportunity for a home playoff game, which would be the first for the Huskies since 2010.

Shortly after debuting their latest retro jersey and the new, matte-green helmets, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies put together their most convincing a victory of the year, a 39-17 romp over the visiting Alberta Golden Bears. While they have clearly made strides from their close win Winnipeg over the Bisons and their loss last week to the Calgary Dinos, they are still inconsistent and are finding ways to beat themselves. Indeed, the only thing consistent last night was the wind, which stayed brisk all night. The Huskies started out strong, using the wind to their advantage and building a 19-0 lead in the first quarter. The drives that produced the | Full Article
