TORONTO — U SPORTS has announced the return of the East-West Bowl game after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, and that McMaster University will host the 18th edition of the top prospect showcase at 12:00 pm ET on Saturday, May 7th.
Been saying this for a long time - the CFL should put together an all-star Bowl game featuring top Canadians who will be up for their next draft: the top U Sports players, plus maybe a few of the NCAA Canucks could attend, and invite a few Junior ball all-stars as well. Hold it in late Dec. as a finale to the Canadian football season (BC Place or the Big Owe ?). And get it on National TV !
The U Sports East-West is nice - but it's in the Spring before real football season, it gets little to no hype or attention, and it's for next year's CFL draft prospects.
