what to know

Get ready for a battle in the Midwest as the Western Michigan Broncos and Toledo Rockets meet at Waldo Stadium on Friday at noon ET. WMU isn’t expected to win, but since the odds didn’t stop them last game, perhaps the team has another surprise up its sleeve.

It was all tied 7-7 at the half for the Broncos and Central Michigan Chippewas last week, but WMU stepped up in the second half for a 12-10 victory. RB Sean Tyler was the offensive standout of the contest for WMU, rushing for a TD and 177 yards on 26 carries. That touchdown, a 53-yard run in the first quarter, was one of the highlights of the game.

Meanwhile, Toledo entered their matchup against the Bowling Green Falcons last Tuesday undefeated at home, but there’s a first time for everything. Toledo fell just short against Bowling Green, falling 42-35. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for the Rockets was that they had been favored by 14.5 points going into the contest. The losing side was prompted by QB Tucker Gleason, who passed for three TDs and 329 yards on 40 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 106 yards.

The Broncos are now 4-7, while Toledo sits in a 7-4 mirror image. Two numbers to consider before kickoff: WMU enters the game with the 30th fewest passing touchdowns allowed in the nation at 14. But the Rockets rank 13th in the nation when it comes to passing touchdowns, with 28 in the season. We will see which of these strengths, offensive or defensive, will win.
