Rockets win Battle of I-75, as COBI Dean Insch wins colorful bet

The betting stakes were colorfully high in a good-natured challenge between Dean Gary Insch of The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation and Dean Ray Braun of the Bowling Green State University College of Business.

The challenge was built upon the longstanding fierce yet friendly rivalry between the two universities, especially during the Rockets versus the Falcons annual football matchup, often referred to as the “Battle of I-75.” The deans bet that the dean of the school losing the November 17 football game must wear the football jersey of the opposing team.

With a UT win over BGSU by the score of 44-28, Dean Braun accepted his fate of being seen around the BGSU campus all day on Friday, November 20 wearing a UT jersey cheerfully supplied by Dean Insch.

“Dean Braun and I had a lot of fun with this challenge, and he looks good in Blue and Gold.” Dean Insch said.  “We recognize that both of our business colleges are key players in serving and enhancing the business climate in this region, and this was a great way to reinforce that message to the community.”

“Go Rockets!”
