Line: WMU by 9.
Series record: Toledo leads 41-29.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
WMU can wrap up an undefeated regular season, but if the Broncos lose this game, they won't even be able to play for the MAC title. Toledo can spoil WMU's chances at a major bowl and advance to the league championship game itself with a victory.
Toledo RB Kareem Hunt against WMU's defensive front. The Broncos are No. 1 in the MAC in total defense but are only fourth against the run. Toledo's upset hopes may come down to whether Hunt can have success on the ground.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Toledo: QB Logan Woodside. WMU QB Zach Terrell and the Broncos' passing game have received much of the attention this year, but Woodside has been outstanding, completing 70 percent of his passes. He's thrown for 3,653 yards with 40 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
WMU: WR Corey Davis. This could be a record-setting week for Davis, who is 18 yards shy of the FBS career receiving record held by Trevor Insley of Nevada. Davis has 4,987 yards receiving in his career.
