The CMU–WMU Rivalry Trophy, also known as the Victory Cannon, is a trophy awarded to the winner of the annual college football game between Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University. In its first appearance, it was awarded to CMU at the conclusion of the October 18, 2008 game.

A cannon, which represents the cannons that are fired at both CMU's Kelly/Shorts Stadium and WMU's Waldo Stadium, sits atop the trophy and each of the schools' wins are noted on both sides.[1]

Although the trophy was not awarded until 2008, the two teams first played one another in 1907.[2]

Western Michigan ended the Chippewas' five year winning streak with a 30-point win in 2011,[3] and backed it up with a win in 2012 with a backup quarterback, the Broncos' first win in Mt. Pleasant since 2002.[4] The Broncos now lead the all-time series 45–37–2.
