The Western Mustangs defeated the Saskatchewan Huskies 27-21 on Saturday to win the Vanier Cup.
Griffin Campbell caught two touchdown passes for the top-ranked Mustangs in front of 5,605 fans on a cold afternoon at Stade Telus-Université Laval in Quebec City. It was the eighth Canadian university football title in Western’s history.
The Huskies, of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, led 12-10 at halftime, but the Mustangs, from Western University in London, Ont., rebounded after the break. Campbell caught an Evan Hillcock pass for a 50-yard touchdown early in the second half to give Western a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
