Rouge et Or teammates celebrate win No. 12 of the Dunsmore Cup after last Saturday's hard-fought battle against the Université de Montréal Carabins on the Telus field at Université Laval.

The Rouge et Or won the Dunsmore Cup for the eleventh time in a row and the twelfth in their history by defeating the Montreal Carabins 14-11 in a nail-biting game on Saturday, November 9, at the Telus stadium. By doing so, the Rouge et Or also extended their awesome record of 64 consecutive home victories.

The provincial champions will go on to play the Mounties at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, for the Eastern Division Uteck Cup next Saturday.
The winner of that match will then play the winner of the Western Division for the Vanier Cup at the Telus stadium on November 23.

The Rouge et Or have won a record seven Vanier Cup championships and are currently the defending champions, after winning the 48th Vanier Cup in 2012.
