Michigan's Denard Robinson Sets Two Records In Loss To Wisconsin

One bright note in Michigan’s 48-28 loss to Wisconsin: Denard Robinson’s added a couple of records to his impressive sophomore season.

With a 12-yard run in the third quarter, Robinson surpassed 1,494 yards rushing. That pushed him past Air Force’s Beau Morgan for the NCAA"s top single-season rushing total by a quarterback.

Robinson finished with 121 yards rushing for the game, giving him 1,538 on the season. That made him the first quarterback in NCAA history to pass and rush for at least 1,500 yards in a single season.

As you might expect, however, Robinson wasn’t too interested in hearing about the records after the loss to the Badgers.


“That doesn’t mean anything to me right now,” he said. “We’re just getting ready to play Ohio State.”

According to the Associated Press, the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) single-season rushing record for a quarterback is 1,844 yards by Georgia Southern’s Jason Foster in 2007.
