Championships Mitchell Bowl

History

The Mitchell Bowl is one of two U SPORTS football national semifinals played between conference champions, with the winner advancing to play in the Vanier Cup. The matchup of conference champions (Canada West, OUA, AUS and RSEQ) rotates on a yearly basis with the Uteck Bowl, the other U SPORTS football national semifinal. 

The game, which replaced the Churchill Bowl, is named in honour of Doug Mitchell, former CFL Commissioner (1984-88) who played for the UBC Thunderbirds and B.C. Lions, and is the founder of the BLG Awards honouring the U SPORTS Athletes of the Year.

NOTES:

(1) In 1997, Ottawa beat Waterloo 44-37 but later forfeited the game due to the use of ineligible players (official score: 1-0 Waterloo).

(2) In 1983, the AUAA chose not to participate in a Bowl game as a protest against CIAU. WIFL champion Calgary received a direct berth in the national final.

(3) In 1967, the OQAA voted against any league participation in the Vanier Cup championship game. WIFL champion Alberta received a direct berth in the national final.
