It was The Denard Robinson Show in South Bend Saturday afternoon, with Michigan’s sophomore quarterback compiling 502 yards of total offense in leading the Wolverines to a 28-24 victory over Notre Dame.
Robinson gained 258 yards on 28 carries, setting a Big Ten record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. (The previous record was 217 yards, set by Northwestern's Mike Kafka in 2008 versus Syracuse.) He also scored two touchdowns, one of them on an 87-yard dash, the other a two-yard run that put Michigan ahead for good with 27 seconds remaining.
In addition, Robinson completed 24-of-40 passes for 244 yards and another touchdown. That makes him the ninth quarterback in NCAA Division I history to both rush and throw for 200 yards in a game. The last signal caller to do that? West Virginia’s Pat White in 2006.
Robinson even contributed a 29-yard pooch punt, pinning the Irish inside their 20-yard line late in the third quarter.
