Rams break into CIS Top Ten for first time since 2012
TORONTO, Ont. – After recording back-to-back wins over ranked teams, the University of Regina Rams have broken into the CIS Top Ten this week for the first time since the 2012 season.
The Rams are ranked No. 9 in this week’s poll released by Canadian Interuniversity Sport on Tuesday morning. Their two-game winning streak includes a 41-38 home win over Manitoba on Sept. 8 and a 20-10 road win over UBC on Saturday.
“It’s definitely nice to be ranked, but we want to continually work on improving and can’t afford to spend too much time looking in the rear view mirror,” Rams head coach Steve Bryce said. “It doesn’t matter what we did last week if we don’t take care of business this week, and we have a good challenge ahead of us on Friday.”
Université de Montréal (3-0) is ranked No. 1 for the third consecutive week. The Carabins, who thumped Concordia by a 59-3 score on Friday, garnered 27 out of a possible 30 first-place votes.
The Rams are back at home on Friday with a game against unbeaten and No. 2-ranked Calgary (3-0) at Mosaic Stadium in what will be a matchup featuring two of Canada West’s three ranked teams.
