Denard Robinson shines in the clutch

September, 11, 2011
It took a while, but Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson delivered when his team needed him most.

Robinson produced an amazing fourth-quarter performance, which followed one of the weaker three-quarter stretches in his career.

Here are some numbers to chew on from ESPN Stats and Information:
  • Robinson completed as many passes of 15 yards or longer on Michigan's final two drives (3) as he did in the first 57:44 of play. He completed 7 of 10 passes for 202 yards and three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
  • Robinson also made strides while operating under center, a question mark entering the season. He threw all four of his touchdown passes after taking the snap from center, completing 5 of 7 attempts and averaging 15.6 yards per completion. From the shotgun, Robinson completed just 6 of 17 passes with two interceptions.
  • Robinson misfired on 6 of his first 8 attempts on passes of 15 yards or longer. He connected on 4 of his final 7 attempts on passes of 15 yards or longer.
