Only one home gate...a host school could get screwed here.
I think the fact that it is in Halifax will mitigate some of that...the AUS is so well supported out here, plus all of the schools are close enough that the other two AUS representatives should also draw well enough for their games. So even if X or SMU go down early in the next two years the crowds should still be decent (unless all the AUS teams go out in the 1st round).
