The Edmonton Huskies are a Canadian Junior Football team based in Edmonton, Alberta. The Huskies play in the six-team Prairie Football Conference, which itself is part of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) and competes annually for the national title known as the Canadian Bowl. The Huskies were founded in 1947.

On October 30, 2004 the Huskies beat the Okanagan Sun 24-7 to win the Canadian Bowl. The very next year, the Huskies went on to beat the South Fraser Rams and then the St. Leonard Cougars to again win the national championship.

In the 1960s the Huskies won 3 National Championships in a row.

On October 9, 2011, the Huskies ended their 31-game losing streak, defeating the Saskatoon Hilltops 31-22.[1]
