UMass Vs. Michigan Score: Wolverines Hold Commanding 42-13 Lead At The Half

The Michigan Wolverines hold a firm lead over the Massachusetts Minutemen, and look well on their way to a 2-1 start with a 42-13 lead at the half. Denard Robinson is having a great game, and is making plays with both his arm and his feet. He's already rushed for 105 yards and a score, and has thrown for 260 yards with two touchdowns through the air.

The Minutemen came close to putting up a touchdown to start the second quarter. At the end of the first, they had three-straight plays of 10+ yards to end up at the Michigan 13-yard line. They followed that up with an 11-yard pass from Mike Wegzyn to Alan Williams that put them at the Michigan 2-yard line. A holding penalty set them back 10 yards though, and they eventually had to settle for a field goal.

They managed to pick up their first touchdown of the game when Robinson was intercepted by Christian Birt in Michigan territory. Birt turned it into a 32-yard touchdown and that put the score at 21-10. But Michigan answered back with a 5-play, 75-yard drive that saw Robinson hit Devin Gardner for a 42-yard touchdown pass. After another Massachusetts three-and-out, Robinson managed to rush for 36 yards and a touchdown on the following drive.

A UMass field goal was added, and yet another touchdown drive by Michigan capped off the first half, leaving us with the 42-13 score.
