The University of Toledo’s home-opening football game vs. Maine Saturday, Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. will feature a halftime fireworks show, courtesy of area auto dealerships that are part of the Rockets’ Car Coaches Program.

“The home opener is a celebration of a new season, so we want to kick it off with a spectacular fireworks display that will light up the Glass Bowl,” said Dave Nottke, deputy director of athletics. “We would like to express our sincerest thanks to all of our Rocket Car Coaches who have made this special fireworks presentation possible.”
