2011 Military Bowl: Toledo Vs. Air Force

The Toledo Rockets and Air Force Faclons meet Wednesday in the Military Bowl at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. The teams will be meeting for the first time ever.

Air Force (7-5) is making its record fifth straight bowl appearance. Toledo (8-4) went 7-1 in Mid-American Conference play.

The Toledo offense begins with the exploits of Eric Page, who was not only named All-MAC First Team as a wide receiver after he caught a school-record 112 passes in 2011, he was also named All-MAC First Team as both a punt returner and kickoff returner as well.

The Air Force offense continued to evolve and incorporate even more passing into the attack this season, thanks to the growth and development of quarterback Tim Jefferson. The winningest signal caller in school history with 28 victories, Jefferson converted 98-of-161 passes for a career-high 1,478 yards on the season with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. Jefferson also tied for the team lead in rushing touchdowns with 10, matching Mike DeWitt as both players combined to generate more than 1,000 rushing yards. Getting the job done all on his own was Asher Clark who carried the ball 151 times and finished with 1,096 yards and six TDs.
