A former Xmen coach is leading his football team on the gridiron this weekend in hopes of claiming the national title. Blake Nill and the UBC Thunderbirds are in Quebec to kick-off with defending champ Montreal at the Vanier Cup. Nill could have a chance to add more hardware to his trophy case this weekend. He says it reminds him of another highlight dating back to the 90s when he was at St. FX.
UBC earned the rights for a Vanier Cup appearance after defeating St. FX at the Uteck Bowl last weekend.
