Woodside leads Toledo past Central Michigan 42-28
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Logan Woodside threw two touchdowns passes and ran for another to help Toledo hang on to beat Central Michigan 42-28 on Saturday night.
Damion Jones-Moore punched it in from the 3 to give the Rockets a 20-point lead with 3:44 left in the third quarter. Central Michigan answered with two touchdown runs by Thomas Rawls, the second sparked by a Brandon Greer interception, to pull the Chippewas within 34-28 with 7:54 remaining.
Woodside faked a dive to Jones-Moore and ran untouched for a 12-yard touchdown to cap an 8-play, 80-yard drive, making it 42-28 with 3 minutes to play.
Central Michigan (2-3, 0-1 Mid-American Conference) drove to the Toledo 10 in less than two minutes, but stalled when Chaz Whittaker forced an Anthony Rice fumble.
Woodside was 23 of 34 for a career-high 339 yards. Terry Swanson added 97-yards rushing and a touchdown for Toledo (3-2, 2-0).
