#22 Toledo Rockets 63 Eastern Michigan 20

AW1_2531

Toledo Rockets are still climbing the AP Poll. This past weekend they were ranked 22nd after moving up three spots from the previous week. On a gloomy, cold fall afternoon at the Glass Bowl. The Toledo Rockets showed just how powerful their offense is. Quarterback Phillip Ely passed for 327 and 4 touchdown passes and even special teams got into the end zone when Chase Murdock blocked a field goal and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown.

After the game was over I had to head down to Ohio State for the Penn State game at 8pm. Be on the look out for that blog post later this afternoon.

Enjoy the photos.
