Toledo Vs. Air Force, 2011 Military Bowl: Time, Location, History And More

The Toledo Rockets and Air Force Falcons are facing off in the 2011 Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman on Wednesday in a battle of high-powered offenses. While neither team gets much attention because neither plays in a major conference and they failed to really dominate their schedules this season, problems were never related to a lack of offense.

Toledo finished this season with the No. 8 scoring offense in the entire nation while Air Force finished No. 21. The Rockets are far more balanced on offense, though, as they were 29th in the nation in passing yards per game and 14th in the nation in rushing yards per game on the year. The Falcons, on the other hand, had the second-best rushing offense in the nation in 2011, but had one of the weakest passing offenses. However, the triple-option that Troy Calhoun runs is not designed to be a passing offense.

The Rockets will need to respond early to the No. 2 rushing offense in the nation (320.3 yards per game), but will the defense be up for the task?

Game Time, Date: 2:30 p.m., MST, Wednesday, Dec. 28

Location: RFK Stadium, Washington, D.C.

Television: ESPN (Play-by-play: Pam Ward; Color commentary: Dan Hawkins; Sideline: Jeannine Edwards)
