  • Simon Fraser-UBC Rivalry Resumes!

    https://athletics.sfu.ca/news/2022/6...c-is-back.aspx

    Simon Fraser will resume their old Shrum Bowl rivalry with U of British Columbia. Game will be played in the postseason. Of course the main hurdle is the difference in rules, but it looks like they will be playing under NCAA rules.

    Who would have thought a Canadian college football rivalry makes headlines in Lone Star football news?

      The game is named after Gordon Shrum who was a professor and later a dean at UBC from 1925 to 1961 and served as the first chancellor of SFU from 1964 to 1968. SFU leads the series 17-15-1.

      This is a good pickup for SFU and UBC posters would come to the GNAC boards for it after SFU joined the GNAC. It went on hiatus also when SFU moved to the NAIA , which they left when CWU, WWU, and WOU moved to the NCAA. I was surprised when I went to CWU that SFU was in the conference as they are a Canadian school.

        There's a nice video about the game on the SFU announcement.

          Looks like that game will be a good one.
