In the third quarter, Lockport native David Fluellen ran 12 times for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns as Toledo scored 18 to open up a 25-14 lead. With 16:17 remaining in the game, Alex Zordich was injured, starting the Licata era. Licata maanged one score, but could not find a second to get Buffalo the win, Toledo held on to win 25-20.

2013 Outlook: Toledo faces Buffalo before a big showdown against Northern Illinois. Buffalo gets Toledo after their final home game against Ohio. The winner of the UB-UT matchup stays alive in the race to win their division.

Players To Watch: Toledo is one of the most dynamic offensive teams in the MAC, Toledo is led by QB Terrance Owens, RB David Fluellen and WR Bernard Reedy.
