Denard Robinson Scores With 17 Seconds Left To Beat Hoosiers

Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) – Denard Robinson hit Junior Hemingway on a 42-yard pass with 21 seconds left and took it in himself for the game-winning four-yard score on the next play, as 19th-ranked Michigan got by Indiana, 42-35, in a shootout at Memorial Stadium in the Big Ten opener for both programs.

Robinson racked up 494 yards of offense and accounted for five touchdowns. He re-injured the left knee that kept him out of the final three quarters in last weekend’s 65-21 home blowout of Bowling Green, but only missed a handful of plays in the third quarter.

The sophomore then directed the Wolverines 73 yards on five plays for the go- ahead score after Indiana tied it up with 1:15 left to play.

The big-play threat threw a 70-yard TD pass to Hemingway and ran for a 72-yard score in addition to a 32-yard scoring strike to Roy Roundtree to significantly pad his Heisman Trophy credentials.

Robinson ended 10-of-16 passing for 277 yards and ran for 217 yards and two scores for the Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten), who had 574 total yards of offense.

Indiana senior Ben Chappell set school records for passing yards (480), completions (45) and attempts (64) with three touchdowns and an interception for Indiana (3-1, 0-1), which hasn’t beat Michigan since 1987 and was searching for its first 4-0 start in 20 years.
