Kickoff for Toledo’s football game vs. Western Michigan Friday, Nov. 24, has been set for 11:30 a.m. on ESPNU.

The Rockets (9-2, 6-1 MAC) can clinch at least a share of the Mid-American Conference West Division title with a win over the Broncos (6-5, 4-2 MAC). A victory also would send Toledo to the MAC Championship Game for the first time since 2004.

Toledo can win an outright MAC West crown with a win over WMU and a Northern Illinois loss to Central Michigan Nov. 24. If Toledo and NIU both win their games, the Rockets would advance to the MAC Championship Game by virtue of a tiebreaker — the Rockets’ 27-17 victory over the Huskies Nov. 2. An NIU loss to CMU automatically sends Toledo to the MAC title game regardless of the outcome of the Toledo-WMU game.

Tickets for the Western Michigan game can be purchased online, at the UT Athletic Ticket Office at Savage Arena, or by calling 419.530.GOLD (4653).
