UNB Schedule

The AUS Site has published the 2012-13 schedule.

UNB opens the season at home vs STU - only the second time in almost 40 years that they have opened the season. The first time for UNB as host (UNB was the visitor in the first game - 97/98 Oct 15 (M. Kelly) UNB -8 vs STU -6)

This is followed by a home game vs UdeM - which is strange as they would have normally played that game on the road.

The next two(2) weekends are on the road in NS (SMU/X followed by ACD/DAL)

UNB's first game against STU in the GHC is Fri. Nov. 9th.

The season is a 16/12 split, so it's more of 3/5 - 2/5 split than a 50:50.

UNB is playing 2 games every weekend except for the last weekend where everyone (all 8 teams) are just playing on Friday (UNB hosts UdeM in that game). So, exhibition has to be done before Oct. 12th as there are no gaps in the schedule (other than Christmas).

UNB has only one(1) Wednesday game (hosting STU) between two road weekends (at X & SMU, then host STU, then visit PEI & UdeM) in mid January - not a good time to have a slump. I wonder if they will stay on the road or return home to turn around the next day?

So - getting off to a good start is important as there are 4pts for every team each weekend.
