Here's a little known fact about Barry Church. I was the first person to interview him as a Toledo…
Church Earns Accolades
For his efforts, Church was named MAC West Division Special Teams Player of the Week. He was also named the Defensive Back Performer of the Week by College Football Performance Awards.

Barry Church and the Toledo Rockets are now 4-3 overall and 2-1 in MAC play. Despite the loss in conference play, they control their own destiny in the MAC West Division race. Western Michigan (Toledo's lone conference loss) lost their 2nd MAC West Division game Saturday at home to Central Michigan.
Toledo hosts Temple Saturday night at the Glass Bowl. Temple is 3-0 in the MAC thus far, and could provide a huge challenge for the Rockets. A win over temple would go a long way towards the Rockets getting bowl eligible and setting up a showdown with Central Michigan for the MAC West Division Title in three weeks.
