For the first time in school history, the Université de Montréal has earned the #1 ranking in U SPORTS football, women’s soccer and men’s soccer at the same time.
The Carabins football team (4-1) took over the top ranking in Canada after a convincing 43-7 win over the Sherbrooke Vert & Or (1-4), while the defending Vanier Cup champions and former No.1 Calgary Dinos (1-1) were upended by the previously unranked Regina Rams (1-1).
