TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Jalen Parmele rushed for 168 yards and three touchdowns Saturday night as Toledo rolled to a 21-point first-half lead and outlasted Eastern Michigan 52-28.

Parmele scored the Rockets' first two touchdowns on runs of 31 yards in the first quarter and 29 yards in the second.

Eastern Michigan (3-7, 2-3 Mid-American) pulled within a touchdown on Pierre Walter's 1-yard TD run in the second quarter, but Toledo quarterback Aaron Opelt found Stephen Williams for TD passes of 20 and 64 yards to give the Rockets (5-5, 3-3) a 28-7 lead at the half.

Each team scored two touchdowns in the third quarter and Toledo had a touchdown and a field goal in the final quarter to finish the scoring.

Opelt completed 17-of-29 passes for 276 yards with no interceptions.

Eastern Michigan's Andy Schmitt and Kyle McMahon teamed up to complete 18-of-33 passes, but McMahon was intercepted twice. Walker rushed for 94 yards on 22 carries.
