    Default Queen's @ uOttawa

    It is raining now and there are likely to be showers throughout the game. Always a crowd killer at uOttawa.

    No Buettner! Ottawa's O looked anemic last season and last week as well. Who knows what will happen with a new QB!!! The D was good last season and brought Ottawa to a second place regular season finish.Can they do that again? Can Queen's lose 3 in a row?

    A bit of trivia: This is the seventh home opener since Gee-Gees Field came into being. The Gee-Gees have won all previous six home openers, Two of them were versus Queen's. This year's Gee-Gees do not want to be the ones that break the streak.

    Furthermore, the game will recognize 1975 Vanier Cup Champion Mike O'Connor, who lost his life in a car accident in 1995. O'Connor was a member of the Gee-Gees for four seasons from 1972 to 1975, and played for Queen's for the 1976 season. He was named a conference all-star twice and since his passing, he has been recognized by uOttawa Sports Services each time his two alma maters meet in Ottawa. A ceremony will take place at the conclusion of the game to award the Mike O'Connor Most Valuable Player award for each team.

    Founded in 1848, the University of Ottawa adopted its official colours Garnet and Grey, and like many nineteenth-century institutions, the athletics teams were known only by the school's colours. Eventually, a connection was made between the shorthand "GGs" and "Gee-Gee", the common British nickname for a racehorse. The unique Gee-Gees name and iconic logo known today is a result of 170 years of history in Ottawa
