Sides for the game — as well as coaching staffs and honorary alumni coaches — will be determined Wednesday and announced Thursday.

The game itself will use normal college football rules except that all kicks will be dead balls — no blocks, no returns. Also, the second half will feature a running clock.

Head Coach Matt Campbell welcomes back a team that went 9-4 in 2014 and returns a solid core of players next fall. Leading the offense will be junior running back Kareem Hunt, a first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection and the MVP of the GoDaddy Bowl, and a pair of All-MAC receivers, senior Alonzo Russell and junior Corey Jones. Eight starters return to the defense, including senior defensive end Trent Voss (GoDaddy Bowl defensive MVP) and two All-MAC defensive tackles, senior Orion Jones and junior Treyvon Hester.

Toledo will open its season Thursday, Sept. 3, vs. Stony Brook.

Season tickets can be ordered online or by calling 419.530.4653.
