FORT WORTH, Texas — For the second time in five games this season, University of Michigan sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach) was named the Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week after leading the Wolverines to a 42-35 victory over Indiana last Saturday (Oct. 2) in the Big Ten conference opener. He received the same honor after leading Michigan to a win over Notre Dame on Sept. 11.
Robinson accounted for 494 yards of total offense in the win against the Hoosiers and has four of the top 10 total offensive performances in Michigan history this season. He was 10-of-16 passing for 277 yards and three touchdowns (27.7 yards per completion), while also notching 19 rushes for 217 yards and two touchdowns. On the Wolverines’ second offensive play, Robinson busted a 72-yard touchdown run and also scored the game-winner, diving into the end zone from four yards out with 17 seconds left in regulation.
He is the only player in college football history to run and pass for at least 200 yards each in the same game twice during the regular season. Through five games, Robinson has 1,913 yards of total offense (1,008 passing, 905 rushing) and has accounted for 15 touchdowns (eight rushing, seven passing).
Michigan welcomes in-state rival Michigan State to Michigan Stadium on Saturday (Oct. 9) afternoon in the Battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy. The game will be shown to a nationally-televised audience on ESPN on ABC and begin at 3:30 p.m.
