Toledo moved up three spots in this week’s Mid-Major Top 25 poll released Monday evening and are now ranked No. 6.

The Rockets extended their winning streak to seven games last week with a 101-57 victory over Detroit Mercy and a 75-74 overtime win at 2018 NCAA Tournament participant Marshall.

Junior Willie Jackson and the Rockets are ranked No. 6 in the Mid-Major Top 25 poll.

Toledo’s 9-1 start to the 2018-19 season is its best since winning its first 12 games in a record-breaking 2013-14 campaign that ended with a 27-7 record. In addition, UT’s .900 winning percentage is tied for 11th best in the nation.

The Rockets’ highest ranking ever in the Mid-Major poll is No. 2 Dec. 30, 2013.

Toledo will begin a four-game homestand Saturday, Dec. 15, against Middle Tennessee. UT will then host Cornell Wednesday, Dec. 19, and Penn Saturday, Dec. 29, before opening Mid-American Conference play in Savage Arena vs. Ball State Friday, Jan. 4.

University employees can purchase tickets at half price, and UT students are admitted free with ID. Go to the Toledo Rockets website, call 419.530.GOLD (4653), or stop by the UT Athletic Ticket Office in Savage Arena.
