MAC games are enjoyable to watch

Toledo has scored at least 60 points in back to back Tuesday night games, and last night's 66 points was just enough to come out on top against Western Michigan 66-63.

Toledo put up over 800 yards of offense, including 419 yards on the ground. Western Michigan threw for 548 yards and 7 touchdowns despite losing the time of possession battle (39:30 to 20:30). The two teams kept the chain gang busy all night as well, combining for almost 80 first downs (the LSU / Alabama match up combined for 32 first downs).

Despite only turning the ball over 9 times in their previous 9 games, the Rockets turned it over 6 times last night; and still won! How often does that happen?

One more note, the 126 points scored by Toledo in their past two games (and the 129 the teams combined to score last night) are more than New Mexico (113) and Florida Atlantic (103) have scored all season. 

Toledo is now 6-4, 5-1 on the season and Western Michigan is now 5-5, 3-3. 

And, we saved the best news for last...there's another MAC game on tonight!
