Toledo Mayor Mike Bell made an official proclamation Monday at the Downtown Coaches Association Luncheon at Savage Arena, declaring that Wednesday, Nov. 20, will be “Rocket Football Day” in the city of Toledo.

The Rockets (7-3, 5-1 Mid-American Conference) will host No. 16 Northern Illinois (10-0, 6-0 MAC) at the Glass Bowl at 8 p.m.

The outcome of this game likely will determine the team from the West Division of the conference goes to the MAC Championship Game Friday, Dec. 6, at Ford Field in Detroit.

Bell called upon the citizens of Toledo to come out to the Glass Bowl and support their hometown team for this big game.

Bell, a UT alumnus, played on the Rocket football team from 1973 to 1976.
