Toledo is a member of the MAC where they went 6-2 in conference play and 9-4 overall in 2016. The Rockets lost to Appalachian State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl on December 17th.
Liberty and Toledo have met on the gridiron twice previously, in 2003 and 2007, with the Rockets winning both previous matchups.
