Black Friday felt like a trip to the Rose Bowl for the staff of Yark Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram as Ohio State University football hero Archie Griffin rolled into Toledo to take delivery of a new Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV. It was the fifth Jeep that Mr. Griffin has bought from the dealership in the past 11 years, said Ryan Ritzler, general sales manager. They’ve all been red, and this $100,000 Grand Wagoneer no exception. Mr. Griffin is the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner, and he started in four Rose Bowls before going on to play for the Cincinnati Bengals in the National Football League. The versatile running back took the Heismans, signifying the best collegiate player, back-to-back as a member of the Buckeyes in 1974 and 1975.

Toledo takes 2 in San Diego, defeats North Dakota State
SAN DIEGO — Led by a 21-point, seven-rebound effort from Quinesha Lockett, the University of Toledo women’s basketball team defeated North Dakota State 73-58 to pick up its second victory in as many days at the San Diego Classic on Saturday. The Rockets (3-2) trailed 30-24 at halftime but used a 22-12 third quarter to pull ahead. Baskets by Sophia Wiard and Lockett in the final 1:04 of the third put UT up 46-42. Those baskets marked the start of a 15-0 Rockets run that gave UT a 57-42 lead with 6:59 remaining in the game. Toledo led by no fewer than eight points the rest of the way. "I thought we were very sloppy in the first half," Toledo coach Tricia Cullop said. "North Dakota State is a long team, and they brought a lot of help quickly, and I don't think we recognized that to pass the ball out. We had way too many turnovers. But we did a better job in the second half, and we also did a better job on the boards. I thought it was great practice on how to play back-to-back games, which we'll have to do in the conference tournament."
