The Toledo Rockets made the best of their first appearance in the Mid-American Conference Championship Game since 2004, beating the Akron Zips by a score of 45-28 to win the MAC Championship.
The Rockets scored 28 first-half points on the arm of senior QB Logan Woodside, who hit Dointae Johnson for two first-half TDs, and connected with Jon'Vea Johnson for a score as well. He'd later hit Shakif Seymour in the 2nd half for another TD. His 4 TD passes are tied for 2nd most in a MAC Championship game. He finished the day throwing for over 300 yards.
Terry Swanson also made his presence known, carrying the ball 21 times for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 54-yard touchdown run in the 2nd half.
Akron made a late push to keep the game interesting: after Toledo opened up a 38-0 lead in the 3rd quarter, the Zips outscored the Midnight Blue and Gold 28-7.
Toledo is still awaiting their bowl invitation.
