Denard Robinson

Dienhart: Snap reactions to afternoon games

It was a busy afternoon of Big Ten football action, with six games during the middle block. The results weren’t exactly what the Big Ten had hoped for, either, as it went 3-3 after opening the day 2-1 in the early games. Read my snap reactions to the afternoon games in this post. Live on BTN/BTN2Go: Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt. Also live: Nebraska vs. UCLA. And at 10:30 p.m. ET, it’s Illinois vs. Arizona State. Michigan State 41, Central Michigan 7 1. Much was made of the inconsistent effort of Spartan receivers in the opening win over Boise State. Well, the

Robinson, Michigan hold off Air Force, 31-25

Denard Robinson ran for 218 yards, threw for 208 and scored four times to help No. 19 Michigan hold off Air Force for a 31-25 win Saturday. Robinson became the first player in major college football since at least 1996 to have at least 200 yards rushing and 200 passing in three games, according to STATS LLC. The Wolverines (1-1) bounced back after a 41-14 loss to Alabama, though they had a tough time beating the Falcons (1-1) in a game they were favored to win easily. Cody Getz ran for 130 yards, with his third rushing TD and a

3rd Quarter Recap: Michigan 28, Air Force 17

Michigan picked up 81 yards in the ground game during the third quarter, and the Wolverines now lead 28-17. Michigan opened up the lead, 21-10, after marching down the field for a one-play, 58-yard drive that ended when Denard Robinson took a quarterback draw all the way for a 58-yard touchdown run. An 89-yard drive that ended when Cody Getz turned a handoff into a one-yard touchdown helped Air Force narrow the deficit to 21-17. The Falcons, during that march downfield, exploited a tired defensive line, running on 10 of 13 plays. The Wolverines added to their advantage when Robinson

2nd Quarter Recap: Michigan 14, Air Force 10

Michigan’s aerial assault is on point, as the margin is still four, as the Wolverines lead 14-10 thanks to 108 passing yards in the quarter. Michigan made its lead 14-3 when Denard Robinson and Devin Funchess hooked up for a 30-yard touchdown on the last play of an eight-play, 88-yard drive. Robinson’s 29-yard pass to Funchess took the Wolverines from the 26 and across midfield to ignite the drive. Air Force closed the gap to 14-10 when Cody Getz pounded in a five-yard touchdown run to polish off a 55-yard drive. Michigan’s Robinson reached the 100-yard rushing mark for the

The Wolverines got on the scoreboard first, rattling off a two-play, 80-yard drive that ended in a score when Denard Robinson took a quarterback draw all the way for a 79-yard touchdown run. A 71-yard drive that ended when Parker Herrington kicked a 21-yard field goal helped Air Force narrow the deficit to 7-3. Despite driving to Michigan’s three-yard line, the Falcons had to settle for a field goal. Air Force kept the

Revsine's Numbers: Week 2 figures to be intriguing

While there’s always a certain excitement surrounding opening weekend, last week’s slate in the Big Ten left quite a bit to be desired. Outside of Michigan’s match-up with Alabama and Michigan State’s battle with Boise State, very few of the games elicited much in the way of excitement. That is far from the case in Week 2, where I’d venture to say as many as eight or nine games carry a fairly significant level of intrigue. From where I sit, the Purdue-Notre Dame battle is the most interesting one on the slate. As we’ve attended Purdue practices over the last

Dienhart: 12 Big Ten Questions for Week 2

Week 2 is here, and questions loom for each team following the opening weekend. Can Indiana score more? Will Rex Burkhead play? Those are just a few of the pressing questions I have for each school as we head toward Saturday.
