Illinois vs. Michigan score: Wolverines hold 17-0 lead at halftime

The No. 25 Michigan Wolverines are well on their way to a 4-2 record and a 2-0 mark within the Big Ten, as they hold a 17-0 lead over Illinois at halftime. Denard Robinson has accounted for a pair of scores, though the first was more on Jeremy Gallon for taking a pass 71 yards for the touchdown. The second came late in the first half, when Robinson put up a 6-yard touchdown on the ground to make it 17-0 following the Brendan Gibbons extra point.

Gibbons also hit an 18-yard field goal after Fitzgerald Toussaint was stopped twice at the 1-yard line. Toussaint has carried the ball a bit better in this game than in previous outings, but he's still being held to just 3.9 yards per carry. Robinson, on the other hand, has rushed the ball 8 times for 66 yards, with the aforementioned touchdown.

Illinois hasn't been able to get anything done on offense, with just four first downs to their credit. They had a shot at three points early in the second quarter, but Taylor Zalewski missed a 50-yard field goal. Robinson fumbled the ball late in the half as Michigan was looking for another score, but recovered it for a substantial loss of yards, which killed the clock and sent the game to halftime.
