A week ago, the Toledo Rockets were on top of the MAC and nationally ranked. There was seemingly nothing standing i-between Toledo and a place in the MAC championship game.
Now, having lost the Northern Illinois, the Rockets look to rebound and re-secure their place in the MAC. At 4-1, Toledo is now a game behind 5-0 Western Michigan, but its highly possible for the Rockets to get back the top of the MAC. That starts tonight against the Central Michigan Chippewas.

Players to Watch
Philip Ely, (QB, Toledo): Ely wasn't his best last week. In Toledo loss to Central he completed a season-low 45.1 percent of his passes threw two picks vs. one just touchdown. For Toledo to win, they'll need to have Ely back near this best. Also, water is wet
Kareem Hunt (RB, Toledo) - Hunt hasn't been the dominant force many expected him to be this year. He's not even Toledo leading rusher. Some of that is because of his suspension, some because a hamstring injury but he looked more like himself last week in scoring two touchdowns against Northern Illinois.
Cooper Rush (QB, Central Michigan) - At its best, Toledo is an offensive powerhouse. If the Rockets blast off from the start, Rush is the man tasked with leading the Chippewas offense in a potential high scoring affair.
Kavon Frazier (DB, Central Michiga) - Frazier is CMU's leading tackler and arguably its best defensive player. If Ely is back to being as good as he normally is, Frazier is key to Central Michigan slowing down Toledo.
