Wolverines Football: Denard Robinson Named Bo Schembechler MVP

Quarterback Denard Robinson has been named the Bo Schembechler MVP award-winner for the Michigan Wolverines, via a tweet by Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free-Press.

Robinson, a junior, threw for 2056 yards and 18 touchdowns and rushed for another 1163 yards and 16 touchdowns, leading the Wolverines to a 10-2 record and a birth in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

This marks the second straight year Robinson was honored with the award.

Robinson was great all year and finished very strongly: In the team's final two regular season games, he led Michigan to a 45-17 win over Nebraska Cornhuskers and a 40-34 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, and in those two games he combined to pass for five touchdowns and rush for four more touchdowns.

The Bo Schembechler MVP award is annually bestowed upon the top football player on the team, named in 1995 in honor of Michigan's winningest football coach in history. Previous MVP winners at the school include New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson.

The Wolverines face off against the 11-2 Virginia Tech Hokies in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 3 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
