The Canadian Junior Football League announced the interconference schedule this morning. It was exactly 40 years ago this year that the Edmonton Wildcats shut out the Hamilton Hurricanes 28-0 in the Armadale Cup, winning the national title.

This historical game will be celebrated this year as Hamilton is traveling to Edmonton September 23 to play an interconference game.
