Ball State’s Keith Wenning threw for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Cardinals’ upset win at No. 23 Toledo on Tuesday night.

Cards upset No. 23 Rockets

– Toledo waited 11 years to get back into the national rankings. In less than three days, the Rockets likely got knocked out.

Jahwan Edwards scored untouched on a 15-yard run around left end with 1:43 left to propel Ball State to a 34-27 victory over No. 23 Toledo on Tuesday night, ending the Rockets’ eight-game winning streak.

Edwards’ run capped an 86-yard drive after Ball State stopped the Rockets (8-2, 5-1 Mid-American Conference) a yard short on David Fluellen’s run on fourth-and-2 at the Cardinals 15.

Keith Wenning completed 29 of 42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns, but was intercepted three times for Ball State (7-3, 4-2).

Fluellen ran for at least 200 yards for the third game this season, carrying 34 times for 200 yards and a touchdown.

Toledo jumped into The Associated Press Top 25 this week for the first time since 2001.

Edwards finished with 105 yards on 16 carries.

The victory helps Ball State, which had already qualified for a bowl, get an even better postseason trip. The loss knocks Toledo out of a possible first-place tie with Northern Illinois in the MAC’s West Division.

Also on Tuesday, Ball State and Michigan announced the programs will play each other on Sept. 24, 2016, in Michigan Stadium.
