Quarterback Logan Woodside celebrated Toledo’s big 54-51 win over Tulsa. He threw for 458 yards and six touchdowns in the Sept. 16 game.

Woodside threw for 458 yards and six TDs to rally Toledo from 21 points down in a 54-51 win over Tulsa. He completed 22 of 33 passes, averaging almost 21 yards per completion. He threw for TD passes of 60, 26, 81, 15, 49 and 74 yards.

Woodside has 7,636 career passing yards and moved into third place on Toledo’s all-time passing yardage list, passing Gene Swick (1972-75, 7,266 yards). His 458 passing yards are third most in a single game in Toledo history; he also holds spots No. 1 and 5 (vs. BYU in 2016 and vs. Ohio in 2016, respectively). Woodside’s six touchdown passes are tied for the most in a single game in Toledo history. Bruce Gradkowski achieved that feat twice (2003 vs. Buffalo, 2004 vs. Ball State). That total is tied for the fourth most in a single game in Mid-American Conference history. In the second half, Woodside threw for 294 yards, third most in a half in UT history and the most ever in the second half.

Toledo (3-0) plays at No. 14 Miami (Fla.) Saturday, Sept. 23.
