BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Grant Loy passed for one touchdown and ran for another, Nate Needham kicked two short field goals and Bowling Green upended Toledo 20-7 on Saturday, ending the Rockets' four-game win streak.
The Falcons (2-4, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) grabbed a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and never let Toledo (4-2, 1-1) get rolling. The defense forced four fumbles, recovered one, had five sacks and nine tackles for loss.
The tone was set early. Loy, who rushed for 137 yards and passed for 185 more, raced 50 yards on the first play from scrimmage. Needham capped the drive with a 32-yard field goal.
Toledo's Mitchell Guadagni swiftly moved the Rockets to first-and-goal at the 4 but Brent Koback was stuffed for no gain, the Rockets lost five yards to a false start and Guadagni fumbled on the next play.
Guadagni was 17-for-20 for 194 yards passing with a 14-yard TD pass to Koback. Koback was held to 65 yards rushing. The Rockets hadn't lost since their Aug. 31 opener at Kentucky.
The game was the 100th anniversary of the first time the teams met in October 1919.
