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.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Everybody knew that the Toledo Rockets were a dangerous team before Saturday’s game at Ohio Stadium started.

The Rockets are the favorites to be the MAC champions and Buckeye fans saw exactly why they are picked with that lofty honor.

The 27-22 win by Ohio State, means the Buckeyes haven’t lost to an in-state rival since 1921.

The Buckeyes are 17-0 against teams from the Mid-American Conference. In previous meetings with the Rockets, Ohio State had dominated and outscored them 87-0.

In Saturday’s contest, the Rockets were leading at 8-7 and 15-7 for a total of 31 minutes, 36 seconds. Then the Bucks started to comeback, Carlos Hyde scored on a 36-yard run and the deficit was 15-14.

Chris Fields took a low, line drive punt and ran it back 69 yards for a touchdown with 46 seconds left in the first half and the Buckeyes led again, 21-15.

The Buckeyes were holding onto a 27-22 lead and trying to score again, when freshman Rod Smith fumbled. UT defensive tackle Johnathan Lamb recovered at his own 33-yard line.

The Rockets second quarterback, Terrance Owens drove the Rockets down the gridiron. Toledo were in business at the OSU 21 with a first down, but their protection broke down and Owens had to throw away a desperation pass at the 16 on fourth down.

The University of Toledo and head football coach Tim Beckman have agreed to a contract extension that will run through the 2015 season.

UT athletic director Mike O’Brien made the announcement back in July.

The 46-year-old Beckman was named head coach in December 2008, inheriting a team that was 3-9 in 2007.

He led the team to a 5-7 record his rookie season of 2009 and an 8-5 mark, 7-1 in MAC play in 2010.

Toledo’s 8-5 record was its best since a 9-3 record in 2005. The Rockets’ 7-1 mark in league play was their best since a 7-1 mark in 2004.

Under Beekman’s coaching, the Rockets made it first bowl appearance in five years when it faced Florida International University in the 2010 Little Caesars Bowl in Detroit’s Ford Field. It’s previous bowl appearance came in 2005, a 45-13 win over UTEP in the GMAC Bowl.
