The most prolific CMU roster of recent Chippewa offensive linemen featured six future players on a NFL roster: Joe Staley, San Francisco 49ers (NFL 1st round draft choice); Eric Ghiaciuc, Cincinnati Bengals (NFL 4th round draft choice); Adam Kieft, Cincinnati Bengals (NFL 5th round draft choice); Drew Mormino, Miami Dolphins (NFL 6th round draft choice); Andrew Hartline, Miami Dolphins; Tory Humphrey, New Orleans Saints.
Kelly/Shorts game day experience
Central Michigan has the largest on campus stadium in the Mid-American Conference,  seating 32,885 fans and has been playing home football games dating back to 1896. The Sporting News has named Kelly/Shorts Stadium "the finest football facility in the Mid-American Conference" and "the best game day atmosphere in the MAC".
CMU is one of college football's winningest schools at home with an all-time .714 winning percentage at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The Chippewas success has been aided by the CMU student body cheering section which often exceeds ten thousand students who create a loud game day atmosphere for opponents. The Chippewa Marching Band, cheerleaders, and dance team all add to the pageantry and game day experience.
CMU drew a capacity home crowd of 35,127 fans for the Central Michigan–Michigan State game televised on ESPN2 and has hosted schools from the ACC, Big Ten, and Big 12 conferences. Future opponents at home include schools from the Big Ten, ACC, Big 12, and Mountain West conferences.
In 2010, the CMU Board of Trustees set course to construct a state of the art stadium expansion to integrate a hotel, restaurant, and conference center connected by a glass atrium to new stadium suites on the east side. The addition is designed to be custom-built into Kelly/Shorts Stadium.
Stadium upgrades include a video scoreboard standing six stories and featuring two video replay boards—one facing into the stadium and a second board facing outside the stadium into the tailgating areas. NFL-quality permanent lighting has been installed for television and future ESPN night games.
"Fire Up Chips!", "OO-Wah . . . Chip-OO-Wah" & "The Fighting Chippewa"
The CMU pre-game entrance signals the anticipation of another Chippewa football contest by filling the stadium with the chant of the name itself, loud and clear: "OO-WAH . . . CHIP-OO-WAH!"
The traditional greeting of "FIRE UP CHIPS!" heard amongst Chippewa fans, students and alumni around the nation can also be heard on game day and throughout the stadium. The Chippewa nickname is used with the consent and support of the nearby Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, who have a positive relationship with the university.
The CMU football helmet logo has evolved from a "Chippewa Indian spear and feather" to a "Flying C" representing the CMU Chippewas.
The Fight Song, "The Fighting Chippewa" (Words and Music by Howard Loomis, Class of 1935), can be heard after a Chippewa score: " FIGHT, Central down the field, FIGHT for victory, FIGHT, fellows never yield; We're with you, oh varsity. Onward with banners bold, to our colors we'll be true, FIGHT for Maroon and Gold, Down the field for C. M. U."
Central Michigan has won sixteen conference championships including seven Mid-American Conference Championships, the most of any MAC team since entering the conference in 1975. CMU has also won more bowl games and MAC championship games than any team over the last decade.
Many notable coaches have contributed to CMU's championship culture. Some include legendary "Wild" Bill Kelly who won seven conference championships in sixteen years and whom Kelly/Shorts Stadium is named after; national championship winning coach Roy Kramer who had a 72% + winning percentage and never had a losing season in more than a decade; College Football Hall of Fame coach Herb Deromedi who was the winningest coach in the MAC over a sixteen year period and Brian Kelly and Butch Jones who combined for three MAC Championships in four years, four consecutive Bowl appearance and top 25 finish in the nation.
The Chippewas won the 1974 NCAA Division II National Championship by defeating Delaware 54–14.

Western Michigan Broncos
These arch rivals first met in 1907 and have faced one another annually since 1943. In the nearly 40 years of CMU-WMU playing Mid-American Conference football, WMU has won only 12 times vs. the Chippewas. The two schools are separated by a two hour drive and the visiting team typically has a strong fan and student presence at the game. The winner of the game annually receives the Cannon Trophy. The outcome also helps determine the winner of the Michigan MAC Trophy, a trophy fought over between Michigan's three MAC football teams: the Chippewas, the Broncos, and the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
2000: Central Michigan 21, Western Michigan 17
The Broncos entered this game with an 8-1 record, atop the conference standings, and on the brink of a top 25 ranking. Conversely, the Chippewas entered the game with a 1-8 record. However, the Chippewas shocked the Broncos, defeating them 21-17.
2004: Central Michigan 24, Western Michigan 21 (OT)
Trailing 21-7 with 2 minutes remaining, Chippewa quarterback Kent Smith rushed for a touchdown. The Broncos secured the ensuing kickoff, but would fumble to CMU. Several plays later, Smith threw a touchdown pass to tie the game and force overtime. The Chippewas went on to win the game 24-21 on a 25-yard field goal. After the kick, the CMU students rushed the field.
2007: Central Michigan 34, Western Michigan 31
Western Michigan scored 14 points within 33 seconds to take a 31-27 lead with less than two minutes remaining. But, on the Chippewas' following drive, quarterback Dan LeFevour threw a 39-yard pass to Bryan Anderson down to the 1-yard line. LeFevour then ran for the winning touchdown.
2008: Central Michigan 38, Western Michigan 28
Senior quarterback Brian Brunner got the nod over injured Dan LeFevour in a matchup of two MAC undefeateds. It was also the first game that would be played for the newly minted "Cannon Trophy." The Chippewas, led by Brunner's 341 yards passing and freshman running back Bryan Schroeder's 141 yards rushing downed the Broncos.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Chippewas and Eagles maintain a less prominent, but steady rivalry. These opponents have faced each other over 90 times.
CMU holds a commanding series lead over EMU, leading 58-28-6.
Michigan State Spartans
These two state universities began their intrastate series in 1991 and the CMU-MSU game is regularly featured as a national T.V. broadcast. The two campuses are geographically close, separated along the same road by just 61 miles (98 km) of U.S. Highway 127 (US 127). The proximity and familiarity of both student bodies has resulted in over capacity turnouts and electric game day atmospheres.
CMU head coach Dan Enos has experienced the competitively played series, coaching on both the MSU and CMU sidelines. As an assistant MSU coach, Enos and the Spartans lost three times to the Chippewas. As the CMU coach, the Chippewas lost twice to the Spartans. Games played at both Kelly/Shorts Stadium and Spartan Stadium have been sold out. Michigan State leads the series 6–3.
1991: Central Michigan 20, Michigan State 3
The defending Big Ten Champion Spartans entered the game ranked 18th in the nation. The underdog Chippewas never trailed, beating the Spartans by a score of 20-3 and controlling all facets of the game. CMU out gained MSU, 346-281, led by tailback Billy Smith's 162 yards and a fierce pass rush that sacked MSU quarterbacks multiple times led by Smith's high school classmate at Detroit Henry Ford, Lamar Sally, who registered three of those sacks.
1992: Central Michigan 24, Michigan State 20
CMU went back down US 127 into Spartan Stadium a year later and won another hard fought battle to stun the Spartans led by MSU quarterback Jim Miller. After the loss to CMU, MSU would finish the year 3rd in the Big Ten only behind Michigan and Ohio State. After beating the Spartans two consecutive years, the rivalry along US 127 was born.
2009: Central Michigan 29, Michigan State 27
Before a national ESPN audience, CMU went into Spartan Stadium and beat MSU who was led by all time MSU passing yardage leader Kirk Cousins. MSU would go on to beat the University of MIchigan and go to a bowl game in 2009-10, while CMU earned their fourth consecutive bowl game and finished 2009-10 in the top 25 in the nation in the final polls. With 32 seconds remaining in the CMU-MSU game, Chippewa quarterback Dan LeFevour, with 420 yards of total offense on the day, threw a touchdown pass to Paris Cotton to put the Chippewas within one point. Head coach Butch Jones chose to go for the win with a two-point conversion pass attempt to CMU All-American Antonio Brown who had ten receptions and a touchdown, but LeFevour overthrew Brown. On the ensuing kick off Bryan Anderson recovered an on side kick to set up the winning 42 yard field goal by Andrew Aguila.
