Friday night’s game between the Columbus Clippers and Toledo Mud Hens was almost rained out. The game was delayed thirty minutes before the first pitch due to a threat of rain in the Toledo, Ohio area.

The Clippers probably wished the game was rained out. Toledo rallied in the seventh inning to defeat Columbus 5-4 at Fifth Third Field.

Clippers starting pitcher Alex White pitched very well, allowing just two earned runs over six innings, but received a no decision.

Scott Sizemore ripped a two-run double off reliever Pablo Espino allowed the Mud Hens to win game number three of the season.

The Clippers trailed 2-0 after two innings, but rallied back with one in the fifth and three in the seventh to lead 4-2.

Jason Kipnis collected three hits and Cord Phelps earned two RBI’s for Columbus.

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.


* 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.


* 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.

Urban Meyer almost resigned from Florida earlier this year but that lasted just one day and was for health reasons.

This time he is resigning because he wants to be a better husband and father. He has two daughters playing Division I volleyball and wants to see them.

The 46-year-old Toledo, Ohio native leaves coaching with an impressive resume’. He has a 103-23 record, a winning percentage of .817, 64-15 at Florida, a 6-1 Bowl record and two national championships. He rebuilt the football programs at Bowling Green State University in Ohio (17-6 record) and at the University of Utah (22-2 record).

Meyer is walking away from about $20 million in guaranteed salary. But Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley did agree to pay Meyer a $1 million retention bonus the coach would’ve received if he were employed on January 31, 2011.

The Florida Gators struggled during the 2010 season and were near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference in every offensive category and finished at 7-5. Florida will play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida on January 1, 2011 against the Penn State Nittany Lions who were likewise, 7-5.
