Toledo football preps for Navy

The Rockets take on Navy, Saturday, Oct. 19.

The 3-3 Toledo Rockets get ready for the challenging triple option offense run by the Navy Midshipmen (3-2).

The Rockets' bye week came at a good time, allowing them time to get in some extra preparation for Navy's offense. The ground-dominated scheme isn't something defenses see everyday. Only a handful of college teams run the offense, including Air Force, which Toledo played two seasons ago.

The Midshipmen rank 10th in the country in rushing and attempt just 12 passes per game.

So, regardless of experience, Navy will be an entirely new challenge for the Rockets.

Game time set for 12pm Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Glass Bowl.
