The Toledo Rockets! The Air Force Falcons! The Mlitary Bowl! If this doesn't sound like the most exciting thing in the world based on names alone, I don't know what could. Toledo's offense has been exciting this year, and we'll get to see a MAC defense try to stand in the way of an option run attack, so things are looking up around here.
