Laval Rouge et Or became the fourth school to repeat as champions with the Saint Mary's Huskies accomplishing the feat right before Laval in 2001 and 2002. Most impressive is that Laval did not give a touchdown during those two consecutives national title games.
Wide receiver and placekicker Matthew Leblanc was named game MVP after scoring four of the team's seven points, catching three passes for 38 yards and recording one rush for 31 yards. Leblanc was filling in at place-kicking duties after injuries to kicker Rob McCallum (early season) and QB/K Stephan Larosilière (the previous week).
Saskatchewan quarterback Steve Bilan completed 11 of 33 pass attempts for 113 yards and five interceptions, two of which went to defensive MVP Matthieu Proulx.
The five interceptions by Laval tied a Vanier Cup record. Saskatchewan's Brent Schneider also threw five picks in a 50-40 loss to Western in 1994.
It was the first time in history that no touchdown was scored in the Vanier Cup game.
