The Rockets come in off an impressive ten win season, finishing 10-2 with a delightful win over Temple in the Boca Raton Bowl.
The Rockets despite hailing from a mid-major conference such as the MAC have all the more reason to be considered a problem for any opponent.
The Rockets handed losses to Power 5 Conference Opponents like a candy dispenser, knocking off both Arkansas and Iowa State in back-to-back weeks.
The Rockets also authored a thrashing of this Arkansas State team in 2015, when they mopped up the Red Wolves 37-7 in the Glass Bowl.
Toledo lost two games by a combined margin of ten points against two formidable MAC foes in Western Michigan and Northern Illinois.
To complement their resume Toledo defeated conference champion Bowling Green handily on the road, as yet another bulletpoint in their impressive credentials.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
After starting off 1-3, the Red Wolves would continue on to lay waste to the Sun Belt conference, winning eight games in a row to dominate the league.
Arkansas State didn’t simply pick on small fries, they took down perennial powerhouses Georgia Southern and Appalachian State in the process.
These accolades afforded the Red Wolves a substantial amount of momentum heading in to their New Orleans Bowl showdown with Louisiana Tech.
The Red Wolves finished 9-4 and in disparaging fashion as Kenneth Dixon and the LA Tech Bulldogs ran up and over the Ark State defense in route to a crushing 47-28 victory against the Red Wolves.
Seemingly, the Red Wolves do not bode well out of conference as they lost all three of their regular season losses out of the Sun Belt.

The Rockets will show no timidity in Jonesboro as they went to Arkansas State’s neighbor in Little Rock last year as a heavy pooch and handed the Razorbacks a loss.
Toledo is a fascinating team, they have a potent offense and one of the best defenses in the MAC, yet on many occasions we see the Rockets undervalued.
The Red Wolves swept the Sun Belt by storm in 2015 but now everyone is on their game, Toledo can win this one outright.

Both of these teams have the potential to explode on the offensive side of the ball. Given the fact this is the opening game and a pivotal affair for both parties, do not be surprised if both coaches let this one rip.
Both the Red Wolves and Rockets enjoy the spread and with that comes offensive acrobatics, expect a shootout.
