         TOLEDO, OH - The University of Toledo will play home-and-home football games with Arkansas State and Fresno State, UT Athletic Director Mike O’Brien announced today. UT will host Arkansas State in 2015 and Fresno State in 2016. The Rockets will return trips to Arkansas and California in 2016 and 2018, respectively.

            “We are very pleased to add Arkansas State and Fresno State to our future football schedules,” said O’Brien. “Both programs are very accomplished and have had outstanding football teams in recent years. We look forward to exciting and competitive series with both schools.”
