OXFORD, Ohio (AP) DeQuan Finn threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score to lead Toledo to a 21-17 victory over Miami of Ohio on Saturday in a battle between Mid-American Conference division leaders.

Finn scored on a 3-yard run to give West Division-leading Toledo (6-1, 4-0) a 7-0 lead after one quarter.

Graham Nicholson kicked a 20-yard field goal for the East-leading RedHawks (6-2, 3-1) early in the second quarter, but Finn scored on a 1-yard run and added a 20-yard touchdown toss to Anthony Torres for a 21-3 lead at the half.

Kenny Tracy and Rashad Amos had 2-yard touchdown runs in the third quarter to pull Miami within four points.

The two teams traded punts the rest of the way until the Rockets' Deshawn Holt recovered a fumble by backup quarterback Aveon Smith with 1:20 left to play, allowing Toledo to run out the clock.

Finn completed 16 of 28 passes for 160 yards and rushed 14 times for 34 yards for the Rockets.

Brett Gabbert had 179 yards on 14-of-29 passing with one interception for the RedHawks.
