Toledo Vs. Air Force Final Score: Unexploded Munition Dooms Falcons To 42-41 Loss

The high-scoring 2011 Military Bowl ended with the sort of explosive play that defined it, followed by an untimely misfire. Air Force scored on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Tim Jefferson to Zack Kauth with under a minute to go to cut Toledo's lead to 42-41, then failed to execute on a fake point-after that ended with punter David Baska fumbling the ball out of bounds.

After the Falcons also failed to recover an onside kick, the Rockets were left standing as the smoke cleared.

Both teams cranked up high-octane offenses for this one. Toledo's Terrence Owens threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns, with Adonis Thomas contributing another 127 yards and a touchdown on the ground, while Air Force got 160 yards and two touchdowns through the air from Jefferson, who added 65 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Toledo's Bernard Reedy caught all three Owens touchdown strikes, and finished with four catches for 125 yards. Eric Page had 13 catches for 59 yards for the Rockets.

Falcons rushers combined to gain 248 yards on the ground.
