KALAMAZOO,MI(WKZO)-- Coming off of a win that got the team back on track, Western Michigan travels to Toledo this upcoming Tuesday to face off vs Toledo. The Rockets are coming off of a defeat to the hands of Northern Illinois in which both teams scored over 60 points.
Stopping Toledo's high powered offense is going to be a daunting task but the Broncos should be ready for it. Senior conerback Aaron Winchester says "We knew they had a good offense coming in and they showed it the other night."
"We have a few packages put in that we think is going to work against their offense. We're basically going to stick to our physical, no missed assignment, making plays defense. We're going to play with a high level of intensity and build for success."
Western Michigan does not play a game on Saturday for the rest of the season, which led to this past Monday and Tuesday being their "bye week." The amount of time off has received mixed reviews from those around the program who certainly feel that the team could have used more time off with the amount of road games they've played.
In all, the Broncos play seven out of their 12 games on the road and have played five of their nine total games on the road. Still, you wont hear any complaining from the Broncos. "Theres no bye week where we come from. We worked throughout our bye week, we're going to work the day after that." said Winchester.
Traveling to Toledo means playing in the Glass Bowl, which is a memorable place to play. "I remember from that game, Brandon West reversed field and went for a career long run. That was the last thing I remember. I think we beat them that year, so we're just going to try to keep that tradition going."
The Broncos play Toledo Tuesday night in Toledo at 8 pm on ESPNU.
