My Prediction: Toledo came into this year as one of the favorites to win the MAC Championship. So far, they have proven worthy despite a 1-1 record. They put up 58 points against New Hampshire in week 1 and then nearly upset Ohio State on the road last week. They have 18 returning starters from last year including WR Eric Page who caught 99 passes last year and already has 17 this year. Boise State has already been declared 12-0 after their opening season win against Georgia. They better not take the Rockets for granted tonight as 26,000 (yes, that’s the capacity) screaming fans will be primed for one of the biggest games in recent memory for Toledo. Boise wins the game, but the Rockets keep it close.
