Toledo, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Logan Woodside threw for a career-high 339 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Toledo Rockets to a 42-28 win over the Central Michigan Chippewas in a Mid-American Conference clash at the Glass Bowl.

Woodside completed 23-of-34 passes with an interception and also rushed for 20 yards and a score for Toledo (3-2, 2-0 MAC), which has won back-to-back games. Alonzo Russell (seven receptions, 120 yards, two TDs) and Corey Jones (eight receptions, 106 yards) both benefited from Woodside's performance. Terry Swanson rushed for 97 yards and a score on just 11 carries.

For CMU (2-3, 0-1), losers of three straight, Cooper Rush threw for 291 yards, two touchdowns and a pick on 24-of-31 passing. Thomas Rawls rushed for 65 yards and two scores, Titus Davis reeled in six passes for 128 yards and Jesse Kroll (seven receptions, 83 yards) was on the receiving end of both Rush scoring strikes.

Toledo opened up the game on a 15-play drive but had to settle for a 32-yard field goal by Jeremiah Detmer.

CMU took a 7-3 lead four minutes later on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Rush to Kroll.

Detmer added another field goal (21 yards) at the end of the first quarter.

The Rockets took control in the second quarter with 14 unanswered points.

The Chippewas opened the second half on a 10-play, 75-yard drive, which Rush capped off with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Kroll.
