Games will be played Wednesday and Friday evenings at Murray Field (Dakota Collegiate) and will follow Covid-19 rules set by Manitoba Health, Football Manitoba and Football Canada.

Harris is the all-time leading rusher among Canadian CFL players and was MVP and Most Outstanding Canadian of the 2019 Grey Cup.

Members of the arch-rival University of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba and Brandon University sports programs have teamed up to make a statement against racism.
