Davis became the career FBS leader in yards receiving, and the Broncos (12-0, 8-0 MAC) never trailed. They scored a defensive touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and eventually broke the game open in the third quarter.
WMU will face Ohio in . . .
Kareem Hunt ran for 200 yards and a touchdown for Toledo, but there was only so much he could do after the Rockets (9-3, 6-2) trailed by a 45-14 count after three periods.
Zach Terrell went 19 of 25 for 196 yards and three touchdowns, and Davis caught eight passes for 81 yards and a TD. Davis broke the career mark of 5,005 yards receiving set by Trevor Insley of Nevada from 1996-99.
Jamauri Bogan also had a big day for WMU, rushing for 198 yards and a TD.
Toledo received the opening kickoff, but Logan Woodside's pass on the first play from scrimmage was intercepted by Asantay Brown, whose 21-yard return gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead. WMU led 24-14 at halftime, then outscored the Rockets 21-0 in the third quarter.
WMU will continue its 2016 quest when it faces Ohio in the MAC title game next Friday (Dec. 2). Both schools are seeking their first crown in decades. The Broncos last MAC championship was in 1988, while Ohio’s drought goes back to 1968.
For WMU, a MAC championship could very well be a key resume item for the committee that will decide which Group of Five team will get a New Year’s Six bowl spot.
