The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has announced it will air the 54th Vanier Cup from coast-to-coast on Saturday, November 23.

The game will also be streamed on CBC’s website and streaming service.

The contest kicks off at 1:00 PM ET in Quebec City and will feature a battle of USports heavyweights.

Sportsnet broadcast the Canadian university championship game for six years from 2013-2018. Prior to that it was produced by TSN. The 2011 and 2012 national title games were watched by over one million viewers.

The undefeated Western Mustangs are the favourites to win this year’s title, though the Laval Rouge et Or, Calgary Dinos and Saskatchewan Huskies are contenders.
