Toledo stood toe to toe with the big team from the Big Ten but in the end the Rockets came up one play short of upsetting heavily favored Ohio State. The Buckeyes prevailed, 27-22, holding on as Toledo failed to complete a fourth-down pass on OSU’s 16-yard line with just 48 seconds to play.
This game came right down to the wire, but Toledo just couldn’t get over the last hurdle and stumbled at the end. It was great to see the Rockets give the Buckeyes all they could handle. This game made a statement across college football about the strength of the Rocket program (and also about the strength of the Buckeyes) and was an indicator of the progress that is being made in Toledo. We take this as a sign of good things to come.
