2017 Toledo Rockets Football Schedule & Analysis
Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Toledo Rockets football schedule
2017 Toledo Rockets Best Case Scenario
The Rockets destroy Elon before fighting through firefights at Nevada and against Tulsa. After fighting the good fight in a loss to Miami, the march to the MAC title game is on with wins over Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan setting the tone, and then with wins over Akron and Ball State setting up the showdown against Northern Illinois.
Despite a loss at Ohio – there will be one MAC defeat along the way – the Rockets still get to Detroit for a shot at the conference title after beating Bowling Green and Western Michigan.
2017 Toledo Rockets Worst Case Scenario
The Rockets lose at Nevada and get outbombed in a shootout loss to Tulsa on the way to a 1-3 start. The home wins over Eastern Michigan and Akron help steady the ship, but a road loss at Central Michigan hurts the MAC title cause – a home loss to NIU kills the run.
Toledo still gets bowl eligible after a few good late wins, but it’s close after losing to Western Michigan to finish the regular season 6-6.
