University of Toledo Associate Athletic Director for Communications Paul Helgren shares his 12 favorite Rocket Football victories since 1998, the year he began working with Toledo Football. No. 9 on the list is the Rockets' 33-30 win at Northern Illinois in 2002.
Toledo 33, Northern Illinois 30 (Nov. 23, 2002)
One of the most memorable wins in my days with the Rocket Football program is a mostly forgotten 33-30 victory over Northern Illinois in 2002. It gets overlooked by so many other great wins in the early 2000's but for me it ranks right up there.
