Two points here. UNB will be in pool A as the AUS runner up only if UofA is in. Secondly, Lakehead has to be #3 OUA because the other OUA teams are champion and runner up. And as I've stated before, Lakehead will not be in the same pool as UofA and UNB.
Assuming a SMU AUS win plus UofA in and the pools look like this:
Pool A: UofA(1), UNB(4), OUA#2(5)
Pool B: SMU(2), OUA#1(3), LAKEHEAD(6)

Change that to a UNB AUS win:
Pool A: UNB(1), OUA#2(4), LAKEHEAD(6)
Pool B: UofA(2), OUA#1(3), SMU(5)

Again Lakehead will stay away from mixing it up with two top ranked teams.
