It's rare to see an SEC team visit a MAC stadium; even rarer for that SEC team to be ranked. But today When Toledo (1-0) welcomes No. 24 Missouri (1-0) to the Glass Bowl, both happen. Oh, and if that wasn't intriguing enough, this game also marks the return of former Rockets head coach, and current Missouri boss man, Gary Pinkel to the Glass Bowl.
Last week Toledo opened its season at home with a 54-20 rout of the No. 4 FCS team in the country, New Hampshire. First-year starting quarterback Phillip Ely dazzled in his debut, throwing for 337 yards and four touchdowns in the win. Toledo's rushing attack was as potent as ever, putting up 314 yards on the ground.
Missouri beat South Dakota State 38-18 last week. Toledo is looking for its first win all-time vs. an SEC school. The Rockets are 0-2, including a close loss last season at Missouri. Toledo is 7-14 all-time vs. top 25 teams, but 5-2 in the Glass Bowl. If you're looking for a MAC upset this weekend, the best bet is on Toledo over Missouri.
