And speaking of the rules, Alberta was correct because the tournament commitee tried to sidestep the regulations: it didn't matter that SMU beat #1 UNB because the regulations state that the seeding of the three conference champions at the University Cup is based on the last week's rankings, just before the playoffs finish. While UNB was ranked #1 they weren't the AUS champion. SMU was ranked fourth and Alberta was ranked second and Western was ranked sixth so Alberta got the #1 seed, SMU got the #2 seed and Western got the #3 seed.

The tournament committee (Lakehead) might have thought they made a logical choice in giving SMU the #1 seed (and getting Alberta out of the Lakehead pool), but rules are rules.
