The Toledo Rockets put together a 13-play drive to get into the Ohio State Buckeyes red zone down just one score in the fourth quarter, but came up just short of putting together a massive upset. The Buckeyes have just barely kept their various winning streaks involving in-state and unranked non-conference opponents alive, defeating Toledo by a final score of 27-22.
Toledo was in the game start to finish and had a 15-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Ohio State scored 14 unanswered in the second quarter but couldn't put Toledo away until the very end. The highlight of the final drive was an improbable fourth and 14 conversion for the Rockets, but they couldn't duplicate the feat on fourth and five from the Ohio State 16, as Terrance Owens' offensive line crumbled in front of him, giving him no chance to make a play.
