The Huskies football team, in the past twenty years, have become one of the stronger teams in Canadian University football by reaching the Vanier Cup eight times: 1988, 1990, 1992, 1999, 2001 (won), 2002 (won), 2003 & 2007. During this streak they would become the third university to win back-to-back championships (2001 & 2002) and the first of two universities to appear in three consecutive championship tournaments (2001–2003). The second being the Saskatchewan Huskies (2004–2006) who finished runner up all three times.

Steve Sumarah was the most recent head coach of the Huskies and had his teams achieve four first-place finishes in his seven seasons as head coach, along with one Vanier Cup appearance in 2007. He was fired on Dec. 5, 2011.[1] Perry Marchese was hired as his replacement on February 17, 2012.[2]
