The University of Calgary Dinos held a coming out party, invited the undefeated University of Manitoba Bisons to McMahon Stadium on Saturday and then proceeded to beat the snot out of them in a 37-17 tilt that broke a two-year winning streak for the 2007 Vanier Cup Champions.

The convincing win is the first time the Dinos put points on the scoreboard this season, squashing any doubts that the 25-0 loss in Saskatchewan a week prior would be a common story this fall.
