AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Logan Woodside threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns, and Kareem Hunt ran for 136 yards and a score to help Toledo beat Akron 48-17 on Wednesday night.

Toledo led by just 10 points at halftime, but scored on its first four possessions of the second half. Hunt had a short touchdown run, Terry Swanson caught a pass out of the backfield for a 10-yard TD, Zach Yousey scored from 44 yards out on a catch-and-run and Art Thompkins capped the scoring.

Swanson had 67 yards rushing and two total touchdowns for Toledo (7-2, 4-1 Mid-American Conference). Hunt moved past Wasean Tait for second on Toledo’s career rushing list and Michael Roberts set a program record for tight ends with his 10th touchdown of the season.

Thomas Woodson threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns and one interception for Akron (5-5, 3-3). Jerome Lane, who finished with six catches for 177 yards, took a short pass over the middle and raced for a 91-yard touchdown on Akron’s first play from scrimmage.

Toledo tied it at 10-all on the first play of the second quarter when Swanson ran untouched for a 9-yard touchdown. Just before halftime, Roberts caught a back-shoulder pass from Woodside in the end zone for an 18-yard touchdown.
