Any kind of race, be it a baby/toddler race or a mascot race, is quality entertainment at a sporting event.

One way to make said races even better is to put the participants in Star Wars costumes.

That’s what Michigan did for Saturday afternoon’s toddler race, and it did not disappoint. Neither did the action around the race, for that matter, as Michigan erased a 15-point deficit and topped UCLA in overtime.

Spoiler: Chewbacca was the winner.
