Notes: A win should assure Toledo of playing in a bowl game for the fourth straight season. The Rockets could will get a bid regardless of the outcome. ... UT running back David Fluellen (ankle) is doubtful. The injury-riddled Fluellen hasn’t been right since leaving the Oct. 26 Bowling Green game on the opening drive. Another running back, freshman Damion Jones-Moore, could miss the game after suffering a concussion in successive weeks. ... Freshman running back Kareem Hunt needs 237 yards to join Fluellen as the first 1,000-yard tandem in school history. ... Akron has exceeded its win total from the past three seasons when the Zips posted three one-win seasons. ... The university recently announced a two-year contract extension with coach Terry Bowden, who is in his second season with the Zips and his 20th as a head coach. ... Zips running back Jawon Chishold has 832 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. Quarterback Kyle Pohl has 2,179 yards passing and is completing 55 percent of his attempts. ... This will be UT’s first game at UA’s InfoCiscion Stadium, which opened in 2009. This will be just the fourth meeting between these teams since 1998.
