2014 MFOOT scheduled released by OUA
HAMILTON (December 4, 2013) - Ontario University Athletics (OUA) officially announced the men's football schedule for the upcoming 2014 season on Wednesday afternoon.

The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, who will be entering their second year under head coach MICHAEL FAULDS, will kick off the season at home on Sunday, August 24 when they host the Guelph Gryphons. It will mark the second consecutive year that Laurier and Guelph square off in Week 1 of the season after the Hawks opened the 2013 campaign on the road against the Gryphons.

Week's 2 and 3 will see the Hawks head out on the road. On Labour Day Monday, September 1, Laurier will be in Toronto to face the Varsity Blues. The purple and gold will then make their first trip to Windsor since 2010 to face the Lancers on Saturday, September 6.

Laurier returns home for Week 4 action as the Battle of Waterloo returns to University Stadium. The matchup on Saturday, September 13 will mark the 54th all-time game between the two crosstown rivals with the Golden Hawks having won the last 10 meetings.

After a bye week during Week 5 of the season, the Golden Hawks will welcome home their alumni for their annual Homecoming game on Saturday, September 27. The opponent who will have to face more than 9,000 purple and gold clad fans will be the Carleton Ravens. It will be the first time that Carleton and Laurier have met on the gridiron since 1970.

The Hawks will wrap up their home schedule on Saturday, October 4 as they welcome the York Lions to town in Week 7.

The regular season winds down for Laurier with back-to-back road games. First, the Hawks renew their rivalry with the Western Mustangs on Thursday, October 9 in London before closing out the year in Hamilton against the McMaster Marauders on Saturday, October 18.

As was the case in 2013, there will be two teams Laurier does not face next year and they include the Queen's Gaels and the Ottawa Gee-Gees. 

Tickets for all Laurier home games for the 2014 season will go on sale shortly. Stay tuned to for complete details.
