UBC went 1-1-1 on an NCAA trip in October. Tied Denver 2-2, lost to Colorado College 3-1 and beat Air Force 4-2.
Don't know if this argument has been made or not, but most, if not all, ranked NCAA teams have NHL draft picks on them. Usually, CIS teams don't, and if they do, that player isn't using the CIS to further his development.
But, for NCAA vs CIS sake, I think the top CIS schools would do just fine against the bottom half NCAA schools. The likes of Northern Michigan, Clarkson, Minnesota State, Alaska Anchoarge are just getting by Regina, Brock, or even losing to Carleton.
In regards to the OP, I'm more biased to Major Junior, it's closer for me to watch live, however I watch the University Cup every year and am always thoroughly entertained. Since the wife will be out watching Twilight tomorrow
, I'm going to see if a buddy of mine wants to check out UBC vs. Manitoba.
