Winnipeg – The U of M Bisons are 0-2 to begin the Canada West Conference Football season after a gut wrenching 41-38 loss in Regina Thursday Night.
The Bisons Defence allowed two long scoring drives in the fourth quarter, resulting in a pair of Rams touchdowns in the final 95 seconds of the game.
After the U of R finished off an 11 play- 87 yard TD drive, U of M running back Alex Christie fumbled deep in Rams territory. That set the stage for the Rams to go 104 yards on 9 plays before scoring the winner major.
Theo Deezar completed 30 of 49 passes for 457 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Manitoba, while Christie rushed for 97 yards before disaster struck late in the game.
The Bisons now face a must win situation for next Friday Night when they host Alberta at 7 p.m. at Investors Group Field.
