The Rams will kick off the 2018 Canada West schedule at home against the defending conference champions, as they’ll host the Calgary Dinos in a big Week 1 matchup at Mosaic Stadium.
The Rams’ other three conference home games will feature UBC in Week 3, Alberta in Week 6, and Saskatchewan to close out the regular season in Week 8.
They will also play Manitoba in an exhibition game at Mosaic Stadium Wednesday. August 22.
The U of R’s road schedule includes Alberta (Week 2), Saskatchewan (Week 4), Manitoba (Week 5), and Calgary (Week 7).
