HALFTIME

Toledo leads Eastern Michigan 38-10 at halftime.

Kareem Hunt became the fifth Rocket to score a touchdown when he bounced off several defenders along his way to a 39-yard run. That made the score 35-3.

EMU quarterback Brogan Roback fired a dart to Dustin Creel from 16 yards away for EMU's only TD, cutting the deficit to 35-10.

The Rockets tacked on three points at the end of the half on Jeremiah Detmer's 20-yard field goal.

 

FIRST QUARTER

Toledo leads Eastern Michigan 21-0 after one quarter at the Glass Bowl.

The Rockets, who have scored touchdowns on all three of their complete drives, reached EMU's 8-yard line when the quarter ended.

Terrance Owens has tossed two TD passes, finding Alex Zmolik in the end zone from seven yards away and firing to a wide open Dwight Macon at EMU's 30 to begin a 47-yard catch-and-run.

UT's other TD came on a 30-yard cutback run by Damion Jones-Moore.

EMU quarterback Brogan Roback, a St. John's Jesuit graduate, entered the game to begin his team's fourth series and was intercepted on the second play by his high school teammate, Cheatham Norrils.
