Can Anybody Out There Give Us a Hand?

We need the public's help. Does anybody know the duration of the Toledo-Ball State game played on 10/15/2005 at Muncie, Ind? It's the one piece of information Marty of cfbstats is missing from his database. Now the man has searched high and low for this, including contacting officials from both schools. No luck. The Wiz even joined in. He contacted the Toledo Blade and asked them if they knew the time. He was told 7 p.m. So much for our efforts. ... Because this information is missing, the total minutes of games from the 2005 season is minus Toledo-Ball State. The following averages of minutes/game and time/game are also minus the one game. We'd also like to point out that this shows how diligent Marty is at getting things just right. His information is gold and you can never have enough gold. Here are the numbers for this week:

Overall...G........Plays......Plays/G....Min.......Min/G......Time/G
2005......388.....65317.....168.34.....77803*....201.04.....3:21:02
2006......421.....64239.....152.59.....78390.....186.20.....3:06.12
* missing game duration of Toledo-Ball State 10/15/2005

Here's the link to the box score from Toledo's site:

...but it's no good because, although it says the game began at 2 p.m., the "End Time" and "Total Elapsed Time" entries are blank for some reason. Probably figured no one would ever want to know.
