After a two-week absence, the Toledo Rockets are back in the Top 25. Following a 44-28 victory over Bowling Green Nov. 17, the Rockets moved up to No. 24 in the latest Associated Press media poll with 123 points, one spot ahead of Temple and one behind Mississippi State.

Toledo also received 69 points in the latest USA Today coaches poll, good for an unofficial ranking of No. 27.

Toledo (9-1, 6-1 Mid-American Conference) will host Western Michigan (6-5, 5-2 MAC) Friday, Nov. 27, with a chance to earn at least a share of the MAC West Division crown. The game will start at noon in the Glass Bowl. For tickets, click here.
