TOLEDO, Ohio (AP)—Wide receiver Eric Page caught two touchdown passes, threw a TD pass and returned two kickoffs for scores to lead Toledo to a 42-31 win over Central Michigan on Friday.

Quarterback Terrance Owens was 24 for 32 for a career-high 304 yards and three touchdowns and caught a 28-yard TD pass from Page.

The Rockets (8-4, 7-1 Mid-American Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak against the Chippewas (3-9, 2-6), the defending conference champions.

Toledo jumped out to a 28-7 lead on Owens’ 3 TD passes—75 yards to Kenny Stafford and 9 and 25 yards to Page—and Page’s first kickoff return of 99 yards.

After the Chippewas scored 10 points, Page returned another kickoff 95 yards for a TD.

Central Michigan blocked a punt to make it 35-24, then Page hit Owens with 10:39 to go.

With its first winning record since 2005, Toledo is hoping for its first bowl bid since 2005.
