Buffalo (1-7, 0-4 MAC) quarterback Alex Zordich, who was taken out of the game in the third quarter due to injury, completed 5-of-16 passes for 118 yards and one touchdown. Joe Licata came in for Zordich and completed 5-of-11 passes for 68 yards and one score.

In the second half, Toledo put together a quick drive and Fluellen scored on an eight-yard run, which made the score 14-13, following a blocked extra point attempt.

The Rockets regained possession and scored when Fluellen punched it in for a one-yard touchdown, which gave them the lead at 19-14, but again the extra point was blocked. Owens connected with Alex Zmolik for a seven-yard touchdown and made the score 25-14 in favor of the visitors, yet once more the extra point failed.
