The University of Toledo football program will be marking its 100th anniversary in 2017, and the Rockets have some special plans to help celebrate this historic milestone.
As part of the celebration, UT will recognize an All-Century Team. Fans will have a chance to vote for the team, which will include the top 50 Rockets of all-time, going back to the first season of organized football at UT in 1917.
Fans can also take part in selecting the 10 greatest victories in Rocket history.
Voting will take place online from May 1-15. The All-Century Team and All-Time Victory list will be unveiled via social media throughout the summer during a 100-day “Countdown to Kickoff,” ending on Aug. 31, which is Toledo’s home opener vs. Elon.
The All-Century Team will be honored on Sept. 16 during the Toledo’s home game vs. Tulsa.
Fans will be able to vote beginning May 1 by going to the official website of the Rockets, utrockets.com. Complete details on how to vote will be available next week.
