Outside the northeast corner of the Glass Bowl, the stomping grounds of your Toledo Rockets football team, sits one of the university’s most prized possession: an authentic U.S. Army rocket from the nation’s missile program.
Donated in 1961 by the military as a gesture of the long-standing rapport between the university and Ordnance Corps of the U.S. Department of Army, the rocket weighs in at over one ton. And where’s the emblem of Toledo’s pride and strength aimed? You guessed it, the 50-yard line of Doyt Perry Stadium, 25 miles south and home to arch MAC rival Bowling Green. Rep your Blue and Gold pride and get ready for Toledo to take the Battle of I-75 Trophy again.
