By in Sports & Health

The games are free for students with proof of student ID, so there is no excuse to miss them.

1. Football Homecoming vs. UBC

Friday, Sept. 6

Huskie football returns for the homecoming game at the end of Welcome Week. They will take on the UBC Thunderbirds at 7 p.m. at Griffiths Stadium in Nutrien Park.

2. Football takes on Calgary

Friday, Sept. 27

Football will return home from a two-game road trip for a rematch of last year’s Hardy Cup, where the dogs upset the undefeated Dino’s at home by a whopping 25-point margin. Kick off is at 7 p.m. at Griffith Stadium in Nutrien Park

3. Men’s hockey battles Alberta

Friday and Saturday, Jan. 3-4

You will have to wait until the new year to watch this battle between conference powerhouses. If you are in the city after the holiday break, this game is a must watch. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. at Merlis Belsher Place.

4. Track and Field Canada West Championships

Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22

For the first time since the 1990s, the Canada West conference will have its own standalone championship event. Previously, conference champions were determined by results at the U Sports national championship.

Both men and women’s teams will have a great opportunity to defend their 2018 championships on home turf at the Saskatoon Field House.

5. Women’s basketball battle of Saskatchewan

Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22-23

The Regina Cougars will visit the PAC during the first half of the 2019-20 season. These teams have met in the Canada West championship each of the last four years, with the Huskies claiming top spot three times to Regina’s one.

Consider this regular season contest a primer for what could become the fifth straight year of an all-Saskatchewan Canada West championship game.

6. Men’s basketball battle of Saskatchewan

Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22-23

Immediately following the women’s game, the men’s team will take on Regina at the PAC.

It will be a rematch of last season’s Canada West quarter final where the Huskies beat Regina 2-0 in the best-of-three series.

7. Men’s football against Alberta

Saturday, Oct. 26

In the final regular season game of the year, the Huskies will battle the Alberta Golden Bears.

The Canada West football conference is only six teams deep. It is likely that this game will have strong implications on the playoff picture.

8. Men’s hockey season opener

Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27-28

Huskie men’s hockey kicks off their season on home ice against the Mount Royal Cougars. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. for both nights.

9. Hockey season finales vs. Regina

Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7-8

Both men and women’s hockey will finish their season in a home and home with Regina.

The men will play at Merlis Belsher Place on Friday night while the women will take over on Saturday night.

10. Any playoff game

Keep track of your favourite Huskie teams and make sure you are in attendance if they are lucky enough to host a playoff game.

The atmosphere in the playoffs across any sport is something special. It is an experience every student should get involved in during their studies here at the U of S!
