Fluellen, who carried 21 times, scored on runs of 6, 53 and 22 yards, and Terrance Owens threw for 243 yards for the Rockets. Jordan Haden returned an interception 63 yards for another Toledo touchdown.
Western Michigan scored when Tyler Van Tubbergen threw a TD pass to Jaime Wilson. Brian Fields later ran 48 yards for a touchdown.
