Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 10-of-18 passes for 88 yards in Saturday's 30-10 win over Central Michigan.

Woodside is normally good for a robust statistical line, but horrendous rain-drenched playing conditions limited his effectiveness on Saturday. He'll hope for sunnier skies against Akron next weekend.
Oct 14 - 6:38 PM

Toledo senior RB Terry Swanson rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 30-10 win over Central Michigan.

Playing in soggy conditions, Toledo leaned on their running game to fantastic effect in the victory. Not only did Swanson go off for 145 yards, Shakif Seymour also blasted through the Chippewas for 119 yards rushing. In five games this season -- Swanson missed one due to an ankle injury -- the 5-foot-10, 200-pounder has put together a trio of 100-yard rushing efforts.

Toledo redshirt sophomore TE Jordan Fisher had three catches for 25 yards last Saturday against Eastern Michigan.

Despite taking the most TE snaps for Toledo this season, Fisher had just one catch all season entering play on Saturday. One year after Michael Roberts was heavily used in Toledo's aerial attack, the Rockets have curiously not used the TE position much in the passing offense this fall. Brian Buckey of the Toledo Blade surmises that Fisher will "become more involved [in the passing game] against Central Michigan on Saturday," and presumably moving forward. Remember: Heavily-targeted star WR Cody Thompson just underwent season-ending injury. Thompson's targets have to go somewhere.

Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson suffered a broken leg in Saturday's win over Eastern Michigan.

Thompson (6'2/200) sustained the broken leg during Toledo's first offensive drive on Saturday. The injury will likely keep him out for the remainder of the season. It's an absolutely brutal loss for the Rockets, as the senior had been working to a sharp 28-537-4 receiving line prior to going down injured. Diontae Johnson, Jon'Vea Johnson and Danzel McKinley will see the bulk of targets moving forward with Thompson sidelined for potentially the remainder of the campaign.
Oct 8 - 12:56 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 23-of-34 passes for 289 yards in Saturday's 20-15 win over Eastern Michigan.

Woodside threw for at least one touchdown in all 13 of Toledo's games last season, but he's now been shut out of that category in two of five contests this time around. Prior to Saturday's quiet showing, he had thrown for nine touchdowns in his last two games, though, and we expect him to pick the pace back up in short order. He'll try to do just that against Central Michigan next Saturday.
Oct 7 - 4:55 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 28-of-48 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 52-30 loss to Miami.

Woodside threw two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter as the Rockets tried to make a game of things, but Miami would score twice more in the quarter in order to salt the game away after Toledo drew to within eight points. The senior gunslinger managed just two touchdown passes in his first two games, but has thrown nine of them in the last two contests. He'll try to keep it going against Eastern Michigan in two weeks. The Rockets are off on bye next weekend.
Sep 23 - 8:23 PM

Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson caught nine passes for 178 yards and three touchdowns in a 54-51 victory over Tulsa on Saturday.

When you catch four passes for 142 yards and two scores like Diontae Thompson did on Saturday and you aren't the leading wideout on your own team, you know someone went off. The other Thompson did just that. The 6-foot-2 wideout scored 11 times last year, so we knew he was no stranger to the end zone. His first score was a big one, as the 28-yarder brought the Rockets back to within two scores at 28-14 with just seven seconds left in the first half. He hauled in two scores in the third quarter, an 81-yarder from Logan Woodside to make it 31-28, and a 15-yarder to make it 34-31. Toledo throws the ball a lot, and Thompson's size, speed and opportunity should allow him to be among the FBS leaders in plenty of receiving categories.
Sep 16 - 11:04 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 22-of-33 passes for 458 yards and six touchdowns with an interception in a 54-51 victory over Tulsa on Saturday.

This was built as a potential high-scoring affair, and neither team disappointed. Woodside (6'2/210) dominated the Hurricane defense, beating the Tulsa defense over the top and underneath. His touchdown passes went for 60, 26, 81, 15, 49 and 74 yards, respectively. Woodside threw for 45 scores in 2016, and he could be in line for a similar number this year.
Sep 16 - 10:58 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 19-of-27 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-24 win over Nevada.

First two touchdown passes of the season for Woodside in this one. Expect plenty more in that category as the campaign unfolds -- the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder launched 45 of them a year ago.
Sep 9 - 11:23 PM

Toledo senior RB Terry Swanson rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries in Saturday's 37-24 win over Nevada.

Swanson notched a three-yard scoring run early in the second quarter and a one-yarder early in the third quarter. He scored twice in the team's season-opening win over Elon, too, but that showing came with just 36 yards rushing. Much more productive on that front against the Wolfpack. The Rockets' Kareem Hunt replacement will try for a second consecutive 100-yard showing against Tulsa next weekend.
Sep 9 - 11:20 PM

Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson caught five passes for 112 yards on Thursday in Toledo's 47-13 victory over Elon.

Thompson (6'2/200 pounds) didn't get in the end zone -- something he did 11 times last year -- which is a minor upset against an FCS school. He's a ridiculous athlete who plays in a pass-happy offense, so you shouldn't expect him to be shutout in that area too often. He'll get another chance to put up big numbers next Saturday against Nevada.
Aug 31 - 10:24 PM

Toledo senior QB Loogan Woodside completed 19-of-31 passes for 311 yards in a 47-13 victory over Elon on Thursday.

Woodside didn't throw for any touchdowns, but the 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior was able to get Toledo inside the red zone, only to have the touchdown vultures (also known as Toledo's running backs) take them away. He wasn't quite as crisp as he normally is, but it's August. He'll likely end the year as one of the top statistical quarterbacks in the country. Woodside threw for 45 touchdowns last season.
Aug 31 - 10:19 PM

Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson checked in at No. 38 on Bruce Feldman's annual "Freaks List."

Thompson benches 350 pounds and has a vertical jump of 37 inches. He posted a 64-1,269-11 line last year and boasts a 3.7 GPA in the classroom.

247Sports' Steve Wiltfong writes "[l]ook for (Toledo senior RB Terry) Swanson to explode in 2017."

Swanson should be able to blossom now that Kareem Hunt is out of the picture, leaving the 5-foot-10, 200-pounder as the Rockets' clear No. 1 back for the coming season. He rushed for 583 yards and four touchdowns while playing second fiddle to Hunt in 2016. To date, his strongest collegiate season came in 2015, when he took 143 carries and spun them into 923 yards (6.5 YPC) and seven touchdowns.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline compares Toledo senior LB Ja'wuan Woodley to former Ohio linebacker Blair Brown.

"Woodley is an undersized linebacker but the senior is a terrific defender who makes plays sideline-to-sideline while showing ability in space," Pauline wrote. Last year, Woodley finished fifth on the team in tackles.
