Season Preview: Toledo

Week Two:

Saturday September 6, 2008

The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the University of Toledo Rockets

Arizona Stadium, 7pm

Toledo Facts: Toledo plays ball in the MAC, home of my favorite team named after another sport, Bowling Green. Believe it or not, Toledo plays it's home games in Toledo, Ohio. In 2007 the Rockets went 5-7, but they have been to four bowl games in ten years. This is head coach Tom Amstuz's eighth season, he is 55-32 with the Rockets.

Good Cat News: Like Idaho yesterday, Arizona's second team should be better then Toledo's first team. That means a home loss is very unlikely. Most have Toledo as the second worst team in the MAC West.

Bad Cat News: Arizona might be Toledo's best chance to win a non conference game. So the Cats need to watch out for a life and death effort by the Rockets. They also play Michigan and Fresno State. Arizona has laid eggs in games like this and a blow out is not likely. If one of those things happen the Wildcats bandwagon could empty fast, a win will not be enough to keep people on board.
