Martez Walker was the only CMU runner of consequence with 56 yards on ten totes with an 18 yard scoring jaunt which but the task of moving the chains on Cooper Rush and the receiving corps. Rush completed 18-26 for 178 yards and a pick but needed more explosiveness down the field. The Chips defense allowed 369 yards but gave up TD's of 30, 60 and 74 yards.

The Toledo Rockets snapped a two game skid with a 34-23 victory over Ball State in the conference opener for both schools. The Rockets posted 470 yards with 318 coming on the tails of a bruising rushing attack. Logan Woodside was adequate under center with 152 yards with a touchdown and interception with Justin Olack giving Toledo 71 yards on three catches. The star of the Rockets attack was Kareem Hunt and his 142 yard, 12 carry performance with a TD while Damion Jones-Moore Terry Swanson and Woodside added 149 yards and three touchdowns. The defense finally looked good after getting hammered by Missouri and Cincinnati with 351 yards given up.
I thought Central Michigan was a dark horse in the MAC but they have not looked good while Toledo is already down a quarterback and facing a must win. I'm backing the Rockets and their very good running game...
