Toledo may seem like an easy first opponent, but it is certainly not. In fact, if Arizona fans are not scared, they probably should be.
The Rockets have a very solid offense that may be breaking in a new quarterback, but it returns one of the best receivers in the country in Eric Page and a solid back in Morgan Williams, who should rush for at least 1,000 yards.
"It is kind of a scary game going on the road for a lot of first timers," Stoops said. "We have a young football team in some areas and playing some young kids so it will be interesting to see how they react and hopefully we will have a positive experience and grow from it."
Most of Toledo's skill positions have some type of experience and Arizona's questions on defense have to be a real concern.
However, Toledo's biggest question is on defense and Mike Stoops plans on using two quarterbacks to exploit that.
"I really like the way that Matt has handled everything," Stoops said. "It shows maturity and that is going to pay off in the end. I think it is very likely both play. Look to play Matt somewhere in the first half. We would like to but the circumstances will either let it or prevent it.
"We're not going to yank Nick Foles. They know what the situation is and we hope the situation presents itself and we get a chance to play Matt a good deal."
