Devin Gardner makes some history against Iowa

Gregory Shamus

Devin Gardner tied the Michigan record with six touchdowns this past week against Iowa, surpassing Denard Robinson's mark of five.

Michigan Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner tied a school record with six total touchdowns on Saturday during their win over the Iowa Hawkeyes. Gardner, who started at quarterback after playing most of the season as a wide receiver, tied Steve Smith in the Michigan record books by throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for three more, and surpassed Denard Robinson's five touchdown mark in his first game.

Gardner guided the Wolverine offense to more than 500 total yards, and an average of 8.3 yards per play. Many thought that Gardner was a better fit for Michigan's offensive scheme than Robinson, but Robinson's athleticism was simply too impressive to take him off the field. The team has not yet announced who will start at quarterback when it faces arch-rival Ohio State on Saturday.

Robinson, who hurt his elbow against Nebraska, still played on Saturday, but saw time at running back and wide receiver. He ran for almost 100 yards, and had 24 receiving yards as well.
