It was the perfect end to a perfect season – the undefeated Western Mustangs’ overtime victory in a Vanier Cup championship that’s been called the best university football game ever played in Canada. Western won 50-40 over the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in overtime to clinch the Cup. Fittingly, the undefeated 1994 Western Mustangs Football team was just inducted by The Western Mustangs Champions Club on its Wall of Champions with four other inductees on April 11 at TD Stadium, to take its place among other Mustangs football legends.
