Cyclones fall in double overtime at Toledo

Posted: Updated:

Kareem Hunt rushed for 129 yards and Toledo beat a second Power 5 conference team for the first time in school history, holding off Iowa State for a 30-23 double overtime win on Saturday night.

Damion Jones-Moore scored on a 10-yard sweep on Toledo's second overtime possession and Rockets defensive end Tre James ended Iowa State's night with a sack of Sam Richardson on a fourth down play.

Iowa State's Cole Netten and Toledo's Jameson Vest exchanged field goals on the teams' first overtime possession after Netton missed a potential game-winning, 32-yard attempt as time expired on regulation.

Toledo quarterback Phillip Ely threw for 138 yards, including a touchdown to Alonzo Russell, and was inadvertently part of a second touchdown when Alex Zmolik recovered his fumble in the end zone. That gave the Rockets (2-0) a 20-10 lead, but Iowa State (1-2) scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
