Toledo Will Face Oregon/Host Bucknell This Fall

1

Toledo's assembling quite the nonconference schedule. Duke, VCU and now Oregon and Bucknell. These recent two may not carry the same name-power that Duke and VCU do, but Oregon is a rising program out west, and Bucknell is a solid mid-major program coming off a down year after three consecutive 25+ win seasons. The Rockets host the Bison.

Toledo will travel to VCU to face the Rams on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU as part of the ESPN 24-hour Tip-Off Marathon.

Solid way for toledo to begin the year. At VCU, on ESPNU. After winning 27 games in 2013-2014, and losing only one starter from that team, the Rockets seem poised for another big year and nothing would set it off better than a win over one fo the nation's best mid-majors on national TV.
