Michigan Vs. Eastern Michigan Score: Wolverines Over 300 Yards Rushing, In Control After 3 quarters

Michigan’s rushing game has pounded Eastern Michigan into submission by rushing for over 300 yards and tacking on two third quarter touchdowns for a 28-3 lead.

Fitzgerald Toussaint and Denard Robinson both ran for scores in the third quarter for Michigan, who have amassed over 300 yards on the ground early in the fourth quarter.

Robinson has not been so hot through the air, completing just 6-of-15 passes for 72 yards, though he did throw a second quarter touchdown to tight end Kevin Koger.

While the passing game has stumbled a bit, the defense has been outstanding since allowing some lengthy early EMU drives. Eastern has turned the ball over twice in the game and picked up zero first downs in the third quarter.

Robinson himself has rushed for 190 yards and has two scores, one on the ground and two in the air, for Michigan while Vincent Smith has 118 yards on just nine carries. Fitgerald Toussaint has 40 yards and a touchdown on ten carries.
