Toledo (3-4) vs. Western Michigan (6-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This is it. This is the chance for Western Michigan to put the dagger into the Toledo MAC title hopes – and maybe, even ruin the bowl dream.
The Rockets aren’t playing well. The offense hasn’t been able to mesh in the losses in three of the last four games, and the defense has been a disaster.
The secondary hasn’t been able to hold its own, getting rocked by Tyree Jackson and Buffalo last week, and giving up 320 yards or more in three of the last five games.
But will Jon Wassink be ready to crank up the WMU attack again?
He was a 200+ yardage machine for most of the season, but last week against Central Michigan was all about the Bronco ground game. It ran for 305 yards and five scores – Wassink came up with three of them – and now, Toledo has to try to figure out what to stop.
It won’t stop any of it, the Rocket passing game that was supposed to dominate will sputter yet again, and WMU will set the bar that much higher for Northern Illinois to try to match – both are 4-0 in conference play – with a decisive home win.
