Saint Mary’s Huskies Football

The Saint Mary’s Huskies football program is one of the most prominent and prestigious activities at the Robie St. school. Huskies Stadium sits at the heart of campus and the team’s success over the years has brought Saint Mary’s nationwide recognition.

The team has established itself as the powerhouse of Atlantic Canadian university football. Since 1960, the Huskies have won 22 Atlantic division championships, twice as many as second-place Acadia University. Winners of the Vanier Cup in 1973, 2001 and 2002, Saint Mary’s has played in a total of nine national championship games, the second-most appearances among Canadian universities.

The team has featured national award winners, most notably quarterback Chris Flynn, who won three consecutive Hec Creighton awards as the most outstanding player in the country from 1988-90. In 2007, quarterback Erik Glavic also won the Hec Creighton.

The Huskies’ 2008 season saw them again win the Atlantic championship with a 29-27 win over St. Francis Xavier. They then lost 28-12 in the Mitchell Bowl, the national semi-final game, to the University of Western Ontario.
