The Carleton University Ravens and the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees football teams, both ranked in the Canadian Top 10 entering the game, are set to play in front of a sell-out crowd in the 50th edition of the Panda Game at TD Place today. Not only did the event sell-out in the days leading to the game for the first time, but Saturday’s game will also set a new record crowd of 24,470, breaking last year’s modern-era Panda Game attendance record of 24,420.

The event continues to draw the highest regular-season crowds in U SPORTS, with the only larger crowd on record coming back in 1950.
