Toledo holds off Air Force 42-41 in Military Bowl

Air Force's attempt at a 2-point conversion went awry with 52 seconds to play Wednesday, giving Toledo a 42-41 win in the Military Bowl.

Air Force lined up to kick the extra point after Zach Kauth's 33-yard touchdown catch pulled the Falcons within a point. But holder David Baska ran the option instead, and he was hit and fumbled the ball out of bounds.

Bernard Reedy's third touchdown of the game gave Toledo a 42-35 lead with 5:01 remaining. Reedy finished with a career-high 126 yards on four catches.

Toledo, from the Mid-American Conference, finishes the season at 9-4. The Rockets scored 40 or more points in each of their last six games.

Air Force of the Mountain West ends up at 7-6.
