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. Alex Neutz was the leading receiver as he caught six passes for 135 yards, with one touchdown, but still the Bulls have lost six straight games.

The Bulls scored first midway through the opening quarter when Cortney Lester picked off a pass and returned it for 23 yards to the end zone.

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.

Licata managed to complete a touchdown pass to Neutz for eight yards, which made the score 25-20. Licata tried for a two-point conversion but his pass fell incomplete, leaving the hosts with the five-point loss.
