TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Lance Moore caught a 43-yard touchdown pass

Damien Linson for the Chippewas (2-5, 1-3). Smith also ran for a
score, but two of his touchdowns came in the fourth quarter after
Toledo took a 27-10 lead.

After Moore caught his touchdown pass from Gradkowski, Smith
threw a 65-yard TD pass to Linson to close Central Michigan to
10-7. Moore's punt return and Gradkowski's TD run put the Rockets
ahead 24-7.
