The defending Vanier Cup champion Rouge et Or (5-0) received the other 13 first-place votes and had 283 points. Laval outscored Bishop's 46-38 last weekend.

The Calgary Dinos (5-0) moved up two spots to No. 3 in the latest poll and the Guelph Gryphons (5-0) jumped two positions to No. 4. The Gaels (4-1) fell two spots to fifth.

The rest of the top 10 was rounded out by the Saskatchewan Huskies (4-1), Montreal Carabins (3-2), Bishop's Gaiters (3-2), McMaster Marauders (2-3) and Manitoba Bisons (3-2).
