Current spread: Toledo -7.5, O/U 62.5
All-time series: Appalachian State 1-0
This game will feature two electric offenses. Both teams have a balanced pass/run attack, so this should be interesting.
QB Taylor Lamb is a deadly dual threat. He passed for 2,606 yards with 27 TDs, while rushing for 539 yards and 5 scores. WRs Ike Lewis (47-666-8) and Thomas Hennigan (44-556-7) will be a test for the Rockets secondary. RB Jalin Moore (912 yds, 9 TDs) provides a solid running attack that will keep the defense honest.
Toledo has an extremely underrated QB in Logan Woodside. He passed for 3,758 yards with 28 TDs this season. Diontae Johnson (72-1,257-13) is his go-to WR. Toldeo has two very accomplished RBs. Terry Swanson (1,319 yds, 14 TDs) and Shakif Seymour (704 yds, 12 TDs) provide a backfield that will draw the defense in to open the passing game.
I really like this matchup. Both teams are very athletic. I like AppSt getting the points and I love the over. We may see at least one of these teams hit 40 in this game.
