The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team is heading out West this week as they will face the Saskatchewan Huskies in a non-conference game on Friday night.

Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. Eastern and the game can be seen live on CanadaWest.tv.

The matchup against Saskatchewan will mark the 10-year anniversary of Laurier’s thrilling 2005 Vanier Cup victory over the Huskies. That game saw the underdog Golden Hawks rally late against Saskatchewan as Brian Devlin connected on a 32-yard field goal with 19 seconds left to give the purple and gold a 24-23 win for their second-ever Vanier Cup Championship.
