Record-breaking win keeps Laval at No. 1

Posted: September 16th, 2014 @ 11:48pm

Its school-record 20th victory in a row has kept Laval in its familiar place atop the weekly ranking of Canadian university football teams, released Tuesday.

The rouge et or haven't picked on any soft touches, as both of its victories have come against Top 10 teams: Montreal in the first week of the season and a 43-1 win Saturday over Sherbrooke, which began play as the No. 9-ranked team in the land.

Laval will try to match McMaster's Canadian Interuniversity Sport record of 21 straight wins Saturday, when it visits winless Bishop's.

The latest poll of members of the University Football Reporters of Canada left the top five teams unchanged, with Laval followed, in order, by Calgary, Western, McMaster and Montreal. The first four are among the seven teams in Canada who haven't yet suffered defeat this year.

Movement was minimal throughout the Top 10, with Guelph and Saskatchewan trading places at 6-7, as the Gryphons moved up a spot and the Huskies down one despite the facts they both won their games Saturday and Saskatchewan remains unbeaten.

Mount Allison was the big gainer, moving up two spots to No. 8, after the Mounties scored two touchdowns in the last two minutes of the game to escape with a 27-25 win over St. Francis Xavier.

Manitoba, which fell out of the ranking last week all the way from No. 6 after losing its first game to Saskatchewan, returns to the Top 10. Concordia, 2-0 to start the season, makes its debut at No. 10.

This week's ranking, with previous rank, my rank, record, this week's result and next opponent:

Laval (1) (1), 2-0, beat Sherbrooke 43-1; next: Saturday, at Bishop's.
Calgary (2) (2), 2-0, beat British Columbia 59-11; next: Friday, at No. 7 Saskatchewan.
