The Bisons football program includes one of only three U Sports football teams to have won back-to-back Vanier Cup championships, having won in 1969 and 1970 In total, the Bisons have won three Vanier Cup national championships and nine Hardy Trophy conference championships

In 2007, the Bisons' football team won the Vanier Cup as the national champions in Canadian Interuniversity football, the first for the school in 37 years Pat Gill, the manager, has been the manager for 40 years and was with the team during the 1969 and 1970 Vanier Cup teams A big factor in the 2007 Vanier Cup was the injury to running back Matt Henry, who suffered and a broken femur in three places and severe muscle damage However, in the end, kicker and punter Scott Dixon converted on all but one of his field goals and pinned the Saint Mary's Huskies deep several times Dixon, in his rookie year, is tied for second all-time for most field goals in a game
