Feature games include UPEI vs. undefeated Saint Mary’s at the Capers Fall Classic (1 PM ET) and undefeated McMaster (5-0) going into the BeeHive in Montreal to face Concordia Stingers (4-2) at 7 PM ET, who were within a buzzer-beating put-back of knocking off touted Dalhousie Tigers last weekend at Mickey Place tournament in Charlottetown. Also at 7 PM ET, an intriguing tangle between two very athletic teams as UNB Varsity Reds travel to Quebec City to meet Laval Rouge et Or. Expect both of these teams to get better as the season progresses.
