The Air Force Academy was thrilled when it was selected to play in the Military Bowl in our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C.

The Falcons will play the high-scoring Toledo Rockets. It’s an honor for the service academy who will be making its fifth straight bowl appearance.

The Rockets will be a tough opponent to defeat. They’re eighth in college football in scoring at 42.3 ppg, which includes five games in a row where they scored at least 44 points to end the regular season.

Both teams have offenses, but defense has been a weakness for both. Take Toledo for example, they lost to Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois, 63-60. Unbelievable!

Air Force averages 34.3 points per game and averages 320.3 in rushing per game.

Air Force comes into the game at 7-5, Toledo at 8-4.

Toledo has WR/KR Eric Page, who is speedy and elusive. He had a big-time performance in the season finale against Ball State, a 45-28 win, where he caught 16 passes for 145 yards.

TOLEDO-OSU RECAP: Toledo players know they missed an opportunity for an upset

Terrell Anderson, Austin Dantin, Terrance Owens and Malcolm Riley represented the Toledo Rockets football team on the postgame podium in the visitors media room in Ohio Stadium after the 27-22 loss to the Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon.

Those players had the look of disappointment because they knew that themselves and their teammates blew a golden chance to be the first MAC team to beat the Buckeyes.

But the Rockets hurt themselves with penalties and a shaky punt team. Toledo was penalized 14 times for 102 yards. They had a key holding call against their defense on Ohio State’s bad pass on a 3rd-and-goal in the third quarter and it gave the Buckeyes new life. Carlos Hyde scored the go-ahead TD on the very next play.

The Rockets defense led by Riley and Anderson, confused the Buckeyes offense with blitzes and stunts and put an extra man in the box on running plays. It is surprising that Ohio State ended up with 112 yards total on 34 carries.

The Rockets offense gave the OSU defense fits with its athleticism, speed and play-making abilities. The Rockets use a spread offense and used Springfield, Ohio native Eric Page, as their primary weapon. The Buckeyes had trouble finding him as Toledo lined him up in different spots: wide right, wide left, in the slots, in the backfield and at quarterback. From the QB spot, Page threw a completed pass to junior TE Hank Keighley for a two-point conversion in the first quarter, to put the Rockets up 8-7. Page is 5-for-6 throwing the football in his UT career.

With the loss, the Rockets fell to 6-9 all-time against teams ranked in the Top 25, including 1-8 in the opposing stadium.

Toledo is now 6-15 all-time versus the Big Ten, but a very respectable 6-10 since breaking through with a win over Purdue in 1992.

Ohio State is 18-0 against Mid-American Conference teams.

Jack Griffin’s 34-yard field goal on the final play of the game gave Florida International a stunning, come-from-behind win over the Toledo Rockets, 34-32 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in Detroit, Michigan at Ford Field.

The upstart Golden Panthers, playing in their first bowl game, faced fourth-and-17 on their final drive before picking up the first down on a hook-and-lateral to T.Y. Hilton.

Seconds later, Wes Carroll found Greg Ellingson across the middle of the field to the Toledo 22-yard line, setting up the final kick for FIU who finishes up 7-6.

The Rockets, who were the favorites and had most of the crowd at Ford Field rooting for them because Toledo, Ohio is just 46 miles south of Detroit, finishes the season at 8-5.

Toledo had taken the lead with 1:14 remaining on a touchdown run by Terrance Owens and a two-point conversion pass to Eric Page.

The two teams aren’t strangers. The Panthers beat the Rockets 35-16 in 2008. Toledo won 41-31 at FIU Stadium in 2009.

FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL PANTHERS GAME NOTES

* FIU started the season at 0-4, losing on the road at Texas A&M, Maryland and Pittsburgh in exchange for huge paydays to help the program.

* This was their first bowl game.

* FIU had a 6-2 record in the Sun Belt Conference and made it to the postseason in the ninth season in the history of the program and its sixth year in the Football Subdivision level.

* The Panthers loss in their season finale to Middle Tennessee State cost them sole possession of first place in the Sun Belt.

* FIU has an explosive all-around player in junior T.Y. Hilton with 56 receptions for 816 yards and four touchdowns. As a running back from scrimmage, he has 26 carries for 278 yards with four TD’s.

* QB Wesley Carroll has completed 61.8% of his passes, but he takes too many risks throwing 13 interceptions compared to 15 interceptions.

TOLEDO ROCKETS GAME NOTES

* Made its first postseason appearance since 2005.

* Freshman QB Terrance Owens took over after Austin Dantin went down after the ninth game with a partially separated shoulder on October 30. Owens ends the season at 2-2 as the starter.

* The Rockets get their spark from sophomore wide receiver Eric Page, who won All-Mid-American Conference honors as a receiver and kick returner. Page is 10th in the nation in all-purpose yardage (158.8). He is fifth in the nation with 94 receptions and is the only player in the Football Subdivision this season with three kickoff returns for a touchdown. He has also thrown for three scores.

* LB Archie Donald is the first Toledo player to lead the team in tackles for four consecutive years. Donald tied for the MAC lead in tackles with 134 and had three interceptions.

* RB Adonis Thomas is second in the Mid-American Conference with 905 rushing yards, averaging 6 yards a carry, and had 29 receptions.
