The Canadian Interuniversity Sport – the Great White North’s NCAA equivalent – is home to some great jerseys and will always hold a special place in my heart as I covered the University of Western Ontario Mustangs men’s and women’s teams throughout my days at the school.
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to pull together all the photos from the schools across the country, so we couldn’t include them in our summer Jersey Rankings and Tournament. We were, however, able to secure the sweaters from the Atlantic University Sport conference, so I figured it’d be a nice nod to the boys out east to rank their jerseys.

Simplicity of the color scheme and the logo make it a winner, plus the 'X' is formidable
Tigers are a dime a dozen in college sports, but this one works with the school/team name framing
The simplicity really works and the icing on the cake are the small axes buried within the top of the 'A' logo
Not often inspired by baseball-style lettering, the Huskies pull it off. Colors and shoulder patch are top notch, too
Yellow on white is often a tough sell, but a good logo and solid striping makes up for any loss on the contrast front
Laces are always a nice touch, but I'm not feeling the logo or the use of the abbreviated "V-Reds"
The laces – and a woeful UPEI entry – are the only thing saving this bland Rangers-inspired Tommies jersey from last place
