Toledo, Ohio • Toledo's Bernard Reedy scored on a 91-yard kickoff return to lead the Rockets over No. 21 Cincinnati 29-23 on Saturday night, handing the Bearcats their first loss of the season.

Cincinnati (5-1) led just once, late in the third quarter, but Reedy quickly erased that with his third special teams touchdown in three weeks, putting Toledo up 26-20.

Toledo's defense stifled Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Lagaux and his high- powered offense, which had been averaging 37 points per game.

Cincinnati had one last chance, getting the ball with 42 seconds left. But Lagaux's second interception of the game ended any hope for the Bearcats.

Toledo's Jermaine Robinson took Lagaux's first interception for a 75-yard touchdown in the first half.

The Rockets (6-1) have now won six straight after an opening loss at Arizona. —
