It was a rainy night in South Florida, the Toledo Rockets finally overcame the frustrations of previous failures over the last six years with a 21-19 win over Liberty in the Boca Raton Bowl. The game was played at FAU stadium.
The Rockets almost blew it , as a valiant effort by Liberty to overcome a two-touchdown deficit nearly succeeded. Ultimately, they came up just short as it was a missed extra point and a failed two-point conversion that proved too costly.
This is the first time since 2001 and the seventh time in program history that Toledo won the MAC title and a bowl game in the same season.
Our JC Ruiz was there to capture some of the action.
