Vanier Cup

From Academic Kids

The Vanier Cup (French: Coupe Vanier) is the championship trophy of Canadian Interuniversity Sport men's football. It is named after former Governor General of Canada Georges Vanier.

History

The Vanier Cup was created in 1965 as its championship trophy of the Canadian College Bowl. In 1982 the name of the game was changed to the Vanier Cup.

For the first two years of competition, the Canadian College Bowl was an invitational event, with a national panel selecting two teams to play, much like the system employed by American college football today. In 1967, the Canadian College Bowl was declared the national football championship of the Canadian Interuniversity Athletics Union, with a playoff system determining the two participants. Save several isolated incidents, this was often contested between the Atlantic Bowl and Churchill Bowl champions.

Traditionally, the Vanier Cup has been played in Toronto, Ontario, often on the day before the Grey Cup. However, in 2004, it was decided by the CIS that the home of the Vanier Cup game would rotate between the four conferences.

The Canadian College Bowl was formally renamed after the trophy in 1982. Today, both the game and the trophy are known as the Vanier Cup, and it is played between the winners of the Uteck Bowl and the Mitchell Bowl. The Uteck and Mitchell Bowls, in turn, are contested by the Jewett Trophy, Hardy Trophy, Dunsmore Cup, and Yates Cup champions.

In every year since 1965, the Vanier Cup's most valuable player is awarded the Ted Morris Memorial Trophy, and since 1992, a second player (often, the most valuable offensive player if the MVP is from the defense and vice-versa) is awarded the Bruce Coulter Award.
