Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Logan Woodside and receiver Cody Thompson connected seven times for 122 yards and four touchdowns to help Toledo beat Central Michigan 31-17 on Saturday.
   It was the second-best scoring game for a wide receiver in program history, trailing just Eric Page with five scores in 2011.
   Woodside found Thompson for two 16-yard touchdowns -- on back-shoulder throws -- in the third quarter as Toledo took a 17-0 lead. On the Rockets' first possession of the fourth, Thompson scored from 11 yards out for a 24-10 lead and the duo added a 34-yard TD with 7:30 remaining.
   Woodside went 23 of 32 for 264 yards and four touchdowns for Toledo (6-1, 3-0 Mid-American Conference).
   The Rockets forced two turnovers. Central Michigan running back Devon Spalding caught a screen pass late in the first half but fumbled it at goal line for a touchback. In the third quarter, Connery Swift jumped a route and made Toledo's third interception of the season.
   Cooper Rush was 18-of-31 passing for 229 yards for Central Michigan (5-3, 2-2). He pulled the Chippewas within 17-7 when he scrambled from 20 yards out and broke several tackles near the end zone.
