The Toledo Rockets look for their first win of the season after losing their season opener to the Kentucky Wildcats. The Toledo Rockets have won four of their last five home games. Mitchell Guadagni is completing 58.3 percent of his passes for 122 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. Guadagni has two touchdown passes in his last three games.

The Toledo Rockets aren't the same team they were a few years ago where the offense was explosive and they ran subpar teams off the field. Toledo has been in a lot more dogfights these last three years and can throw up a stinker now and then. The Murray State Racers are fresh off a game against Georgia and played Kentucky last year, so this is a team that's faced some big boys and should be up to this task. Murray State also has 19 seniors and a young quarterback who has played well. The Racers can put up a fight to stay within the number.
