■ Notes: UT has won the last three meetings, including a 27-15 victory at the Glass Bowl last season. No member of BG’s roster has played in a game in which the Falcons have beaten the Rockets. … Before UT’s 28-21 win at BG in 2011, the Falcons had won two in a row at home against the Rockets and five of their previous six. … UT brings a four-game streak of scoring a defensive touchdown into the contest. … The status of David Fluellen, Toledo’s leading rusher, will be a game-time decision. Fluellen, who leads the MAC with 143.7 yards per game, suffered a back injury in last week’s win over Navy. … UT coach Matt Campbell (2003-04 and 2007-08) and special teams assistant Stan Watson (2008-11) both coached at BG before moving to Toledo. … The Falcons look to improve to 4-0 in MAC play for the first time since 2003, the year BG won the West Division title. … Both teams have dominated the opposition in the third quarter: The Rockets have outscored their opponents 65-31 in that period, and the Falcons hold a 66-14 third-period advantage. … UT’s Jeremiah Detmer has made 12-of-13 field goals this season, but BG’s opponents are 0-for-5 on field goals in 2013.
