The Chippewas plagued by injury, fell behind by 14 in the first and struggled to catch up. Toledo played conservative as they could with only one formation under center in their playbook. The Rockets held on to get the win as star QB Dan LeFevour left the game with a minor injury. The Rockets offense was led by Senior Quarterback Aaron Opelt who threw for 239 yards on 15 completions with 23 attempts and 3 TDs. His main target was Kenny Stafford who caught 5 passes for 65 yards with 1 TD. WR Eric Page caught 4 passes for 91 yards with 1 TD. Star WR Stephen Williams was shut down with only 2 catches for 17 yards. Runningback Dujuane Collins rushed for 50 yards on 15 carries with 1 TD. Toledo's defense was led by the NCAA leading tackler Barry Church who had 11 tackles with 4 TFL. That puts him at 108 tackles on the season. With possibly 4 games left in the season he will need to average 17 tackles a game to break the NCAA all time record. SS Lamar Richmond had 11 tackles and DE Dan Quinn had 10 tackles. DE Westbrook added Toledo's only sack. Freshmen CB Byron Best had 1 interception with a 57 yard TD for the secondary. The Toledo Rockets (9-1, 6-0) will now go back home and bring the 1-8 Eastern Michigan Eagles for the second to last conference game. Toledo will need to win out in order to play in the MAC title game.
