Central Michigan might not win on the gridiron this Saturday when the Chippewas welcome the Toledo Rockets to town for a little in conference #MACtion, but there's no doubt they'll win on the catwalk.

It's tradition's week in Mt. Pleasant and in honor of Chippewas' teams of past, Central Michigan is donning some crisp throwback jerseys.
