The Toledo Rockets led most of the game until 7:34 left in the fourth quarter when T.Y. Hilton caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Wesley Carroll.
Toledo then went down seven points and eventually came back to score a touchdown to get within one point, when quarterback Terrance Owens ran it in from 14 yards away.
The Rockets coach Tim Beckman made a gutsy call to go for two in which he said after the game, "We played to win, and that's what we are going to do at Toledo." The Rockets converted on the conversion to put them up one. That is when FIU came back and hit a game-winning field goal.
It was a true heartbreak for the Rockets, and one has to feel for their team and coaching staff.
Tim Beckman said after the game, "Any game hurts when you lose, the team put their heart and soul on the line."
