AF 41, TOL 42 FINAL
Welcome to this afternoon's cold and frigid matchup in the 2011 Military Bowl between the Toledo Rockets and the Air Force Falcons with 25,042 fans in attendance at RFK Stadium here in Washington, D.C.
This has the makings to be a decent matchup, as both teams enjoyed somewhat of a resurgent season as Air Force finished 7-5 in the Mountain West Conference, and Toledo finished 8-4 in the Mid-American Conference. Both offenses have the ability to strike quickly, so it will be on the defense to keep the game from getting too crazy for their respective teams.
The Falcons are an offense that uses the Triple Option, and in order to run that style of offense, you have to have a stellar running back. The Falcons have that in RB Jon Lee.
The Rockets aren't backing away from the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy winners, as they have some talent of their own in QB Terrance Owens and Adonis Thomas, and will look to make a splash in the heart of D.C.
Stay tuned to this live blog all afternoon for the latest score, highlights and play-by-play analysis.
