Robinson set the record with a rushing touchdown late in the first half.

It was Denard Robinson's final appearance for the Michigan Wolverines in their rivalry with the Ohio St. Buckeyes and even though he didn't throw a single pass, Robinson made his presence known with 122 yards of rushing on 10 touches. His touchdown late in the second half not only gave the Wolverines a 21-17 lead but it set a Michigan record.

Robinson continues to be bothered by an elbow injury in his throwing arm so was used as a running back in yesterday's 26-21 loss to Ohio State. Devin Gardner filled in for Robinson and went 11 for 20 with 171 yards of passing, including a 75 yard yard touchdown pass to Roy Roundtree to tie the game in the first quarter. Robinson will have a chance to add to his total in Michigan's upcoming bowl appearance.

Henne was a four year starter at Michigan with 27 total touchdowns his freshman season. His touchdown total declined each season with 17 touchdowns his senior season after 24 and 22 touchdowns his sophomore and junior seasons respectively.
