Marauders look to tie national record for consecutive wins
The McMaster Marauders football team will kick off its post-season Saturday at Ron Joyce Stadium.
The Marauders, who were unbeaten in the regular season, will take on the Western Mustangs, who finished 5-3.
The Mustangs gave the Marauders their closest game of the season on September 29, when they scored nine points in the final minute of regulation to make it a 33-27 final.
The OUA playoffs got underway last weekend, when Queen’s shut out Laurier 34-0 and Western beat Windsor 56-35.
McMaster and Guelph both had opening round byes.
The Marauders are riding an 18-game win streak that stretches back to 2011. A win on Saturday would tie the national record for consecutive wins, currently held by Laval.
The semifinal game is scheduled for Saturday at 4:30 p.m. It will be broadcast on theScore.
The Marauders will host a pre-game tailgate party in Marauder Plaza outside Ron Joyce Stadium starting at 3 p.m.
