The Michigan Wolverines came out on Saturday and earned themselves a 2-1 record by thoroughly dominating the UMass Minutemen, 63-13. Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was, as usual, the star of the game. He was effective both on the ground and in the air, with 291 passing yards and three passing touchdowns alongside 105 rushing yards and one touchdown run.
Aside from an interception in the second quarter that saw Christian Birt score a defensive touchdown for UMass, Robinson was pretty much perfect on the day. He threw strikes to Devin Funchess (26-yard TD), Devin Gardner (42-yard TD) and Roy Roundtree (18-yard TD). With the help of running back Fitzgerald Toussaint (15 carries, 85 yards), Michigan rolled through UMass virtually undeterred.
UMass quarterback Mike Wegzyn managed just 141 yards passing, while running back Michael Cox needed 18 carries to go 76 yards. Their only touchdown was the interception return, while Brendon Levengood hit a pair of field goals in the second quarter to account for the other six points.
Michigan will face a tougher matchup next week, as they hit the road to take on No. 20 Notre Dame, while the Minutemen will take on an easier opponent in Miami (OH).
