TOLEDO, Ohio -- Bryant Koback rushed for a career-high 259 yards, Eli Peters and Drew Rosi connected for the game-winning touchdown in overtime and Toledo held off a big Eastern Michigan rally to defeat the Eagles 37-34 on Saturday.
Koback's 54-yard touchdown run in the third quarter put Toledo (5-3, 2-2 MAC) ahead 31-10. Eastern Michigan (4-4, 1-3) then rallied with a 4-yard scoring run by Mike Glass, a 3-yard TD run by Shaq Vann and a 26-yard run by Vann.
In overtime, Chad Ryland kicked a 24-yard field goal for Eastern Michigan. Toledo's possession opened with a 10-yard run by Koback. After an incomplete pass and a run for no gain, Peters hit Rosi on an out-pattern at about the 2-yard line and he was tackled a foot or two inside the right pylon for the touchdown.
Glass completed 21 of 37 passes for 286 yards and a touchdown for Eastern Michigan. Vann had 110 rushing yards on 20 carries with the two touchdowns.
Peters completed 9 of 18 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. The Rockets had 57 rushing attempts for 366 yards.
