In 1999, after competing for 45 years in junior football, the Regina Rams became a member of the Canada West Conference of the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (CIAU). In only their third year of playing in the CIAU, the Rams won the Canada West conference championship and then the Atlantic Bowl. They then went on their way to the Vanier Cup where they lost 42 - 39 to the Ottawa Gee Gees.

Before entering the CIAU the Rams had been highly successful. The predessors of the Rams won national championships in 1928, 1938. The Rams formed in 1954 when the Bombers and the Dales amalgamated.

The Rams participated in the Man-Sask Junior Football League from 1954 - 1975. Then from 1976 - 1998 they joined with teams from Alberta in the Prairie Football Conference.

During the 33 football seasons from 1966 to 1998, the Regina Rams participated in 17 Canadian Junior Football Championships, emerging with victories on 15 occasions (1966, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1980, 1981, 1986, 1987, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997 and 1998).
