The contest will be televised live on FSN Ohio (RSN, Ohio), Comcast Local (RSN, Michigan), Comcast Sports Net (RSN, Chicago), and Adelphia 13 (Cable, Buffalo). Michael Reghi (play-by-play) and Bob Chimel (color commentary) will call the game from the booth, while Brooke Weisbrod will report on the action from the sidelines.
The Oct. 29 clash could go a long way in determining who represents the West Division in the 2005 MAC Championship Game. Toledo has appeared in three of the past four title games and enters this weekend's action 3-0 in conference play; the Chippewas are just a game behind Toledo at 2-1 in MAC contests.
Toledo leads the all-time series between the two programs, 17-13-3. Last season, CMU quarterback Kent Smith completed a school-record 29 passes in 42 attempts for 385 yards and nearly rallied the Chippewas from a 27-10 fourth-quarter deficit. Toledo, however, withstood Smith's school-record 446 yards of total offense and claimed a 27-22 win.
The Toledo game will be CMU's sixth on live television in 2005. The Chippewas played before television audiences on Sept. 2 (Indiana - ESPNU), Sept. 17 (at Penn State - ESPN Plus), Sept. 24 (Eastern Michigan - Comcast Sports Net Detroit), and Oct. 8 (at Army - ESPN Classic), with the Nov. 19 regular season finale at Ball State set to be carried on Comcast Sports Net Detroit.
Central Michigan (3-3 overall, 2-1 MAC) plays the first of three-in-a-row at home this weekend, hosting Ohio. Kickoff of the Homecoming contest is set for 1 p.m.
