Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

In early September, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline praised Hunt's "quickness, burst and agility." The 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior proceeded to turn in a lovely rebound season after a down 2015 campaign that saw him finish with 973 yards rushing. This time around, Hunt has rushed for 1,355 yards (5.6 YPC) and eight scores over the course of 12 games.
Dec 6 - 4:23 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 200 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Friday's 55-35 loss to Western Michigan.

Not only was Hunt a beast on the ground, averaging an even 10.0 YPC, he also chipped in with three catches for 73 yards. All of this beautiful work went in vain on a rainy Friday night fit for rowing a boat. This was the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back's fourth consecutive game of at least 100 yards rushing. His 200 yards on Friday stand as his best tally of the 2016 campaign.
Nov 25 - 8:58 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 107 yards on 17 carries in Wednesday's 37-19 win over Ball State.

Hunt couldn't find the end zone as a rusher, but oh boy, did he find it as a receiver, coming away from the game with a 71-yard scoring grab. He finished the contest with six catches for 98 yards and the singular score. For the season as a whole, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior has rushed for 1,155 yards (5.3 YPC) and seven touchdowns in 11 games. He has shown his mettle as a receiver throughout and is currently working on a lovely little 36-304-1 line on that front.
Nov 17 - 12:59 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 25-of-39 passes for 325 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Wednesday's 37-19 win over Ball State.

This game was played in an eerie, dense fog, but that proved no concern for Woodside, who threw two of his three touchdowns post-halftime -- only after the game turned into a John Carpenter movie. This was the 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior's seventh 300-yard passing game in 11 contests. That is impressive enough, but pales in comparison to Woodside's propensity for the touchdown pass. He has tossed at least three in every game this season. Overall, the gunslinger has thrown for 3,653 yards (70.1% completions) with a 40/7 TD/INT ratio. A road showdown with Western Michigan is all that is left on the regular season schedule. That contest will be played next Friday.
Nov 17 - 12:33 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 23-of-33 passes for 286 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

All three of Woodside's touchdown passes came in the second half, as the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder helped lead a comeback after falling behind 21-10 midway through the third quarter. Woodside is now up to 3,328 passing yards with a 37/6 TD/INT ratio in 10 games played.
Nov 10 - 5:33 PM

Toledo redshirt sophomore WR Jon'Vea Johnson caught six passes for 129 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

On his touchdown, Johnson ran wide open across the middle of the field and QB Logan Woodside hit him perfectly in stride from 36 yards out. The 6-foot, 183-pounder has been a big-play receiver throughout the season and is averaging 20.6 yards per reception. Through 10 games, he has caught 34 passes for 700 yards and nine touchdowns.
Nov 10 - 5:20 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

Hunt's touchdown wasn't a long bolt for glory, but boy howdy, it was an important one. He scored from one yard out with just 1:15 remaining in the game, snapping a 24-24 tie in the process. NIU held a 21-10 lead midway through the third quarter, only to see it all slip away. Toledo improved to 8-2 with the victory. They will close out the regular season with games against Ball State and Western Michigan. The latter contest, slated for Friday, November 25, could pit a 9-2 Toledo team against an 11-0 Western Michigan team. If the Rockets can hold up their end of the bargain, the Broncos only need to beat Buffalo next Saturday to set everything up for that huge tilt.
Nov 10 - 2:59 PM

Toledo junior WR Cody Thompson caught five balls for 70 yards Wednesday against Akron.

We've been impressed by the Rockets' home run deep threat this fall. He's proven to be more than a one-trick pony, snatching the ball away from defensive backs in one-on-one situations and creating space buffers with his tight routes. Thompson boasts a 47-987-9 line so far.
Nov 3 - 7:33 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Wednesday's 48-17 win over Akron.

Hunt offered metronomic consistency in this one, averaging 8.0 YPC with a long run of 21 yards. His touchdown came from two yards out with several minutes gone in the third quarter. With the performance, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior passed Wasean Tait to move to second on Toledo's all-time rushing leaderboard. For the campaign as a whole, Hunt has picked his way to 926 yards on the ground while scoring six rushing touchdowns over the course of nine games.
Nov 3 - 2:07 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 26-of-37 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns in Wednesday's 48-17 win over Akron.

Woodside connected with Michael Roberts for an 18-yard score as time expired in the first half, then came out of the locker room to fire off two more touchdown passes before the game's end. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior has been among the most impressive quarterbacks in the country on a pure statistical basis this season. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in all but two of Toledo's nine games to date and has thrown for at least three touchdowns in every single one of them. Overall, Woodside has racked up 3,042 passing yards with a 34/5 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 3 - 1:22 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 32-of-46 passes for 438 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 31-26 loss to Ohio.

Woodside failed to lead the Rockets to a touchdown in the first quarter, but came on in the second, when he tossed two of his three scores. His 438 yards passing on Thursday marked his second highest tally of the season (he threw for 505 yards against BYU several weekends ago). For the season as a whole, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound gunslinger has racked up 2,715 yards through the air while whittling out a 31/5 TD/INT ratio. He has thrown for at least four touchdown passes in all but two of Toledo's eight games to date. He compiled three touchdown tosses in each of those still-juicy outliers.
Oct 28 - 3:16 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 87 yards on 20 carries in the school's 31-17 win over Central Michigan.

He added another catch for nine yards. This was Hunt's lowest total in the last five games. Toledo is now 6-1 on the season, with their only loss coming to BYU in a 55-53 contest.
Oct 22 - 3:25 PM

Toledo junior WR Cody Thompson caught seven passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns in the school's 31-17 win over Central Michigan.

This is quite a first blurb for Toledo's number one receiver. Thompson dominated the redzone in this game, winning in contested situations and creating separation in the tighter area of the field to bring down four scores. Prior to the game, Thompson produced five touchdowns on the season, so he almost doubled his yearly output in this contest alone.
Oct 22 - 3:18 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 99 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 42-35 win over Bowling Green.

As nearly five-touchdown underdogs, the Falcons gave the Rockets everything they could handle. Following a James Morgan passing score to Teo Redding late in the fourth quarter, it actually looked like Bowling Green was going to force overtime. But Toledo slapped them away shortly thereafter, with Hunt plunging in for a three-yard touchdown with a mere 18 seconds left on the clock. Toledo improved to 5-1.
Oct 15 - 7:13 PM

Toledo redshirt sophomore WR Jon'Vea Johnson caught 9 passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns in the school's loss to BYU.

One touchdown accounted for 79 yards, but Johnson's 15 yard scoring grab might have been the most impressive, converting a contested catch into a touchdown. We did not know Johnson's name before Friday's contest. That has obviously changed. In fact, he recorded just three catches prior to the loss to BYU.
