Gryphons 2015 Football Schedule

With four of the Gryphons’ six toughest OUA opponents coming to Guelph I don’t have too many complaints about our 2015 OUA schedule beyond the obvious problem that we don’t get to play the University of Western Ontario in the regular season.

Fluky things happen with the OUA schedule so the most important thing I was looking for was to see whether we host the McMaster Marauders. We do! The Mac Men will be the opponent in the 2015 Homecoming Game. That’s important as Mac has won 4 of the 5 most recent games vs the Gryphons and all their wins were on their home field. Guelph last beat McMaster in the UofG’s 2013 Homecoming Game.

The home slate of games should offer up reasonably competitive games as all the opponents we face were 2014 playoff teams. The Laurier G-Hawks comes to town on Labour Day. Then, it’s Mac on September 19. Followed by the Ottawa GeeGees on September 26. We host the Windsor Lancers on October 17. Thankfully Guelph’s bye falls on Thanksgiving Weekend.

One disadvantage of the schedule is it does give the Carleton Ravens a bye week before we head up to Ottawa to face them in the season’s final week. That is real advantage for an underdog home team hoping to pull off an upset. Heading to Queen’s on October 3 to face a Golden Gaels team the Gryphons crushed 66-0 this past season will be a tougher game than most people expect. It has been a long time since Guelph won in Kingston. Guelph’s first two road games are against Waterloo and York.
