Michigan's Denard Robinson sets record
The Michigan Wolverines beat the Connecticut Huskies 30-10 Saturday to get Rich Rodriguez's third season in Ann Arbor off to a good start. Sophomore Denard Robinson got his first career start at QB and turned in quite a performance. He rushed for a career-high 197 yards, setting a school record for rushing yards by a QB. He also set career highs in completions (19), attempts (22), completion percentage (86.4) and passing yards (186). And Michigan beats an FBS school for the first time since Sept. 26, 2009. Robinson also is just the sixth FBS player since 2005 to rush and throw for 185 yards in the same game.
The No. 11 Oregon Ducks also set several records on Saturday when they beat New Mexico 72-0:
• 72 points ties the school's single-game "modern" record
• 720 total yards sets a new single-game school record
• Their 72-point win is the largest in school history over an FBS school
Sophomore RB Kenjon Barner had a day to remember. Barner rushed for 147 yards and four TD, and added a receiving TD -- all in the first half! Barner entered the game with four career TD, and is just the second player in the last five years to score five TD in one half.
