SASKATCHEWAN

may lead the series

23-6 since 1999, and

ride a six-game win

streak but itʼs clear

that the #WheatBelt is

hotly contested.

In the regular season,

games have been

decided by a median

point spread of a TD.

Third year pivot Noah Picton is the clear

leader at the midway

point of 2016 for

the Hec Crighton

Trophy, the award for the top

player in Canada.

Picton is on a pace to crush

the CIS record for passing yards in a

season. The current title holder is Calgary

grad Andrew Buckley (3,162, 2015) who

now plays for the Stampeders.

Pictonʼs 1,714 through four games

has him on a clip to hit 3,428.

He has had games of 499

(v. Sask) and 481

(v. Manitoba).

THEO DEEZAR, MANITOBA - 381.8

DEREK WENDEL, OTTAWA - 381.5

JIMMY UNDERDAHL, CALGARY - 311.0

His 40 completions versus Manitoba was not only

a schoo record, but placed him in second on the

all-time Canada West list behind none other than

Huskies starter Kyle Siemens, who completed

44 versus UBC in 2015.

Thereʼs litlle doubt that if Tyler Chow

was part of an unbalanced offence, he

would still be leading the nation in yards per

game.

But the Huskies mix run and pass, and as a

result Chow holds down second spot at 143.0

YPG, and is first in the CW.

The $278-million, 33,000-seat “New” Mosaic Stadium has been a lower bowl sellout for weeks.

The #WheatBelt is the first game in the new facility, and will set a new Canada West mark

with 16,500 spectators. The winner of this game will receive a championship “Wheat Belt”

at their first regular season game of 2017.
